The "Bibione is surprising" Run: change of date and route

The third edition of this annual fixture in the well-known Venetian tourist resort will take place on Sunday 4th September with a programme centring on the international 10 mile event and "Bibione in rosa - Pink Bibione", a special race dedicated to women. New route and finish line on the beach. Sign up from 1st January; special rates for the first 400 applicants. Organised by the Conegliano Running Team.

A decisive turn in order for us to grow once again. The "Bibione is surprising" Run - the grand end-of-summer race in the heart of the famous Venetian tourist destination - has several important changes in store for its 2016 edition.

Firstly, the third "Bibione is surprising" Run will take place on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th September, two weeks earlier than the event in 2015. Secondly, the route will be brand new: a sort of elongated ring departing from the scenic Piazza Fontana and finishing directly on the beach opposite Piazzale Zenith. The first leg of the competition will cover the streets of Bibione's town centre; the second half will cover almost the entirety of the suggestive cycling-walking trail which runs along the strand.

The 2016 edition of the "Bibione is surprising" Run opens officially on Saturday 3rd September with the inauguration of the exhibition centre which received critical acclaim in its first two editions. Unlike in 2014 and 2015, the key event will take place on Sunday morning.

The traditional international Fidal 10 mile race starts at 9.45 and, just like in the first two editions, it will bring together the best Italian and foreign car racing pros. Prior to the race, at 9 a.m. from Piazza Fontana, there will be "Bibione in rosa - Pink Bibione" a 5 mile (approx. 8 km) race for all women, covering a shorter distance than the international competition.

Sign up for the "Bibione is surprising" Run from 1st January. For the first time ever, the event will be organised by the Congeliano Running Team in Treviso alongside the San Michele al Tagliamento Municipality, the "Bibione Live" tourism consortium and Atletica Bibione. Special rate: €15 for the first 400 applicants.
