francesco kliner from Switzerland - Ticino (4/25/05)
4-5 previous marathons
| 1 Saint Anthony Marathon
Adding 4300+ participants to the 2005 edition is a big increase over prior year. Nevertheless organization handled it reasonably well. This is a marathon that takes you from the village of Vedelago, to the beautiful center of Padua. The road is closed to the traffic. You cross a few villages, where they turned the marathon into a community party, with bands playing music and people cheering.
The rain on the last 10k made running on the stone pavement of Padua City city somehow painful. But once you are there, you know you've made it.
