Physical race to go ahead and virtual event enables worldwide participation

New Ravenna initiative offers plan B

Ravenna Marathon – City of Art
Sun 14 November 2021

The Maratona di Ravenna - Citta d'Arte offers the opportunity to “be” at the heart of Ravenna during the days of the Marathon.

Ravenna Runners Club has launched a new initiative which is not just a virtual version of the real thing but a further opportunity for those who will not be able to come to Ravenna for the in-person event.

The Hoka Ravenna Marathon City of Art 2021 takes place on the roads of Romagna during the weekend of 14 November 2021. Contemporaneous scheduling of the virtual event allows those motivated to conquer the Marathon from their own city or country and earn the famous handmade mosaic medal, a true icon of Ravenna Marathon, in addition to the event technical t-shirt.

A site has been set up at (also reachable from the homepage of where you can find all information on the VIRTUAL EDITION. Participants outside Ravenna will still be able to choose which distance to run: the Hoka Ravenna Marathon City of Art 42k, the Ravenna Half Marathon 21k or the Martini Good Morning Ravenna 10k just like those who will be in Romagna. Among the novel features is the opportunity to register for a training session in view of the event.

Thanks to the dedicated website you can immerse yourself in a virtual journey into the beauties of Romagna, a locality of artistic and culinary tradition, with particular attention to the splendid Ravenna monuments recognized by Unesco as a World Heritage Site. Registration allows each participant access to a reserved section which offers unique experiences such as the virtual tour: “Dante, the eyes and the mind”; 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. There is also a VIRTUAL EXPO for all members with some of the main partners of the Hoka Maratona di Ravenna City of Art with unique and exclusive opportunities.

You can run the virtual race anywhere. It will be sufficient to measure the distance travelled 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 complete you will access a dedicated section where you can enter all the information. The virtual site has a FAQ section with answers to all the most frequently asked questions.

In short, Ravenna Runners Club continues to await runners in Romagna on the weekend of 14 November but in such a particular period we also offer a “plan B” for those who cannot really be in Romagna.
