Thousands of people of all ages and different competitive level will walk in the same course where will pass Verona Marathon to arrive in the charming Piazza Bra to enjoy the applause of the participants have already arrived and spectators, in a context of shows and entertainment that will continue until ‘arrival of all marathon runners.
The event, now in its 4th edition, is designed to create the right atmosphere for the arrival of the runners and to give the opportunity to walk in the beautiful streets of the old town as athletes and walkers. It has been since the first edition directed to a purpose of social solidarity, taking in an original way a widespread trend in all major running events in the world.
In recent years the proposal has been enthusiastically received:
in the first year have been achieved unexpected results, not only in terms of participation (5,000 participants) and economic (20,000 Euros of direct funding), but also in the creation of a new form of aggregation and participation of all the Third Sector. A sunny day saw a river of happy participants, as happens in Verona in the great days of celebration Running, in February with the Romeo and Juliet Half Marathon in May with the Straverona and in December with the Christmas Run.
The second year has repeated the success although not with the same number of participants: the adverse climate has greatly reduced the influx of last hour runners (4.000 people). Four thousand people have participated in the initiative, however, under a leaden sky, after several days of rain: many wore the beautiful original T-shirts made specifically for QUID. The proceeds amounted to over € 15,000 for charity projects.
The third edition saw departure and arrival in Piazza Bra, where was located the Expo Village, a meeting point for participants and a place of interest for visitors. The event was large, 4,770 people ran/walked the streets of Verona aware of the gesture made beneficial. The proceeds of the ONP was over 28,800 Euros.
Edition in 2015 joined a select number of Nonprofit Organizations in the event that they see a special occasion of public visibility and the opportunity to raise funds for their specific charity projects. The presence of stands managed by NPOs in the EXPO located in Piazza Bra and the ability to do animation and involve athletes, spectators and passers-by, are creating great enthusiasm as well as the sale of the chest between friends and acquaintances.
