The virtual edition alongside the Ravenna Marathon in attendance

An additional opportunity to “be” with the heart in Ravenna during the days of the Marathon and feel part of a great sporting event. Ravenna Runners Club is launching a new initiative these days that does not want to represent the virtual version of what remains and will always remain the Hoka Ravenna Marathon City of Art with all its large container of events, but rather a further opportunity for those who , in the second weekend of November, they will not be able to reach Romagna for various reasons to take part in the real event.

Thus, with these prerogatives, the VIRTUAL EDITION of the Hoka Ravenna Marathon City of Art 2021 was born. On the roads of Romagna during the weekend of 14 November 2021. An idea that will therefore accompany the event, allowing those who want it to conquer, in any case, even from their own city or country, the famous handmade mosaic medal, a true icon of Ravenna Marathon, in addition to the technical t-shirt of the event.

Thanks to the expertise of the English company Realbuzz Group Events, which also follows other major marathons including those in New York City and London, a real site has been set up at virtualravenna.realbuzzevents.com (also reachable from the homepage of maratonadiravenna.com) where you can find all the info on the VIRTUAL EDITION.

Those who cannot reach Ravenna will still have the possibility to choose which distance to face: the Hoka Ravenna Marathon City of Art 42k, the Ravenna Half Marathon 21k or in Martini Good Morning Ravenna 10k just like those who will be in Romagna on November 14th. Among the curiosities also the opportunity to register for a training session in view of the event, while there will also be advantages for subscribers.

Thanks to the dedicated website, you will immerse yourself in a virtual journey into the beauties of Romagna, a corner of artistic and culinary tradition, with particular attention to the splendid Ravenna monuments recognized by Unesco as a World Heritage Site. Included in the registration, each participant will have access to a reserved section where they can experience unique experiences such as that of the virtual tour “Dante, the eyes and the mind“. Ravenna and three exhibitions told in a new way. Dante Alighieri’s last refuge, with exhibitions dedicated to the Supreme Poet at the Classense Library, the Church of San Romualdo and the MAR City Art Museum. And again the Paolo Roversi exhibition, in virtual version, “Studio Luce”. And always for all members, a VIRTUAL EXPO with some of the main partners of Hoka Maratona di Ravenna City of Art with unique and reserved opportunities.

You can run the virtual race anywhere. It will be sufficient to measure the km traveled with a gps tracker or with one of the many Apps available for runners and then upload the result on the platform. Once registration is completed, you will access a dedicated section where you can enter all the information. However, the virtual site has a rich faq section with answers to all the most frequently asked questions.

In short, Ravenna Runners Club continues to wait for everyone in Romagna on the weekend of November 14th, but in such a particular period, it also offers a “plan B” for those who cannot really be in Romagna despite everything.
