Venice Night Trail

Registration and detailed info can be found HERE.  

Venice Night Trail is an extraordinary opportunity to explore Venice at night. It is a perfect mix of sports enthusiasm and the charm of the Venice city center. 

The first edition of the race took place in 2016. The course has undergone a few changes in the following years and keeps improving. Today, over 3000 runners are part of this unique event. 

The next Venice Night Trail will occur on Saturday, April 1, 2023. This is one of the famous annual events of Venice   

The race course is 16 km long and includes running up and down 51 bridges. That might sound challenging, but the views and the team spirit are worth the effort. It starts at 9 PM so you can enjoy the cool weather and the best of Venice highlights in the dark.

Everybody 16 years and older can participate, including Fit Walkers and Nordic Walkers. You can go at your comfortable pace as there are three hours to complete the race. Bibs pick-up and all activities take place at the Venice Running Village. The Village is in Venice Tronchetto. 

The course of CMP Venice Night Trail

The start and finish line of the race is in Venezia Tronchetto. 

From there, the runners go up to the Biennale, Piazza San Marco, the Accademia Bridge, and Punta della Dogana. Then athletes reach Fondamenta delle Zattere and later San Basilio. The track then goes along the magnificent Giudecca Canal through the port area and to the finish line. 

Where to stay? 

In the case of CMP Venice Night Trail, it’s a bit different than with other running events in Venice. There is no special accommodation area like the Running District for the Venicemarathon.
