Many of you are asking, precisely in these days of doubts and hopes, if Ravenna Marathon City of Art will take place on November 8th.
At the moment, our answer can only be one: the event is still on the calendar, as it always has been.
There are still more than 130 days to our event and every hour, every moment, we read all sorts of news, rumors and advances which then often turn out to be without foundation.
In these years we have always worked hard and with extreme seriousness and we want to continue doing it even now.
For this reason, we emphasize that our will, our firm intention, is to organize, on November 8th, the 22nd edition of the Ravenna City of Art Marathon.
At the same time, however, we would like to emphasize that we intend in every way to listen and respect the provisions, regulations and indications that will be provided to us by the competent authorities in the ways and at the times they deem appropriate.
We care about the health of all our members, volunteers and their families.
We care about the image of our city and we don’t want to disappoint the many people who have always been close to us in recent years, granting us their trust.
There is still time to train, to prepare, to run and have fun together.
There is still time to look to the future with optimism.
There is still time to organize our event in full compliance with all regulations and guaranteeing health protection.
Every day we find new energies in the messages of our runners, full of hope and trepidation for a “green light” that would make legs and hearts fly.
However, we are waiting for the authorities to tell us how to operate, how to move and how to organize. In the meantime, we continue to work in the belief that seriousness, transparency and balance must always be our guiding thread.
We, meanwhile, keep the target aimed at November 8th.
Without giving up, until the possible goal.
