The positive analysis of the 9th BMW Jesolo Moonlight Half Marathon & 10K
The quality level of the event, organized in Jesolo on Saturday 25 May with the new record of 1h01'37", has increased. 
The event, a big party of 6,000 participants, will generate an economic impact on the area estimated at around 2 million euros.

Venice, May 29, 2019 - Venicemarathon and the City of Jesolo archive a ninth edition of BMW Jesolo Moonlight Half Marathon & 10K and are already working to prepare a truly special 10-year edition.
An event like the Moonlight always draws a group of over 6,000 runners, most of whom come from outside the region (about 70%) and from abroad (33 countries). In these cases, the sporting event is experienced as an expedient to spend a weekend of sun and sea with families and friends, which generates an important promotional and economic induction for the zone   in the initial stages of the season's opening. 2 million euros of induced calculated in the past editions are an aim that should be easily reconfirmed, if not exceeded, and Venicemarathon is already collecting the data to realize the new study. 
An initial assessment of the edition that has just ended (Saturday, May 25), it can easily be said that the BMW Jesolo Moonlight Half Marathon & 10K is a successful event because it is experienced as a great party, thanks also to the music, to the enthusiasm of the speakers, to the musical bands along the race course and to the strong heat of the audience. Moreover, this year the half marathon made a leap of exceptional quality from a technical point of view: in addition to the new record of the race (1h01'37" by James Murithi Mburugu ), faster than about 1 minute and a half compared to the previous one (1h03'07"), as many as five athletes ran under the 1h03'; in the women's field the Kenyan Lenah Jerotich, ran in 1h13'08". 
The numbers of the BMW Jesolo Moonlight Half Marathon that can provide the real picture of the magnitude of the event: about 1,000 volunteers employed in services in the start and finish line and along the way including 40 local police officers, a relay race of Traffic Police, the Fire Brigade, many volunteers coordinated by the Civil Protection of Jesolo, including the Piovese group, and an impressive health service coordinated by the Green Cross of Cavallino. In addition, there were also 20 medical runners qualified for cardiopulmonary resuscitation and early defibrillation. Approximately 40,000 bottles of San Benedetto water were distributed, 500 litres of salts and 12,000 ProAction products, 1,200 cans of Bavaria Premium beer, 10,000 Zuegg  fruit juices, 35,000 Palmisano biscuits, 6,000 Ventura dried fruit bags, 20,000 fruit and vegetable products including apples, oranges and bananas, 8,000 Karhu technical t-shirts give to volunteers and athletes. Along the way the athletes were cheered by 6 musical bands. Over 65,000 photos were also taken by the photo agency "Beam" with the "Pica" system and 3 hours of live streaming of the event, 5 hours of social media images and distributed to local television stations were produced. 
Among the curiosities, the most mature at the finish line of 21K was Franco Carlo Mereu, born in 1941, who closed his rehearsal in 2h14'19 "and there were 9 athletes who celebrated their birthday on Saturday 25 May.

-12 days to the Jesolo Moonlight Halfmarathon: BMW new "title sponsor"
Monday, May 13, 2019 - Less than two weeks at the Jesolo Moonlight Half Marathon & 10K, organized for Saturday, May 25 (with starting at 7.30pm), the good news continues. After the announcement of the participation of one of the strongest italian marathon runners of the moment, Eyob Faniel, today Venicemarathon announces the entry into the family of a brand of great value: BMW. The company becomes the title sponsor of the half marathon and from today will be called BMW Jesolo Moonlight Half Marathon & 10K.

BMW Italia gives the name to a unique half marathon, which starts at sunset and ends when the stars are already high in the sky; able to offer on its way an alternation of different naturalistic aspects such as the sea, the river and the pine forest and a fascinating part of the race that runs along the promenade and the beaches, where the athletes are accompanied by the sweet melody of the sea, from glow of the moon and the background music of the bands and kiosks on the sand.

Tomorrow the official presentation of the 9th BMW Moonlight Half Marathon & 10K is scheduled, scheduled at 12.30 pm at the Hotel Villa Sorriso in Jesolo.

The BMW Jesolo Moonlight Half Marathon is organized by Venicemarathon and the City of Jesolo.
The start of the Moonlight Halfmarathon will be at 7.30pm, a not usual time for a half marathon, so nutrition will have to be managed in the best way so as not to start weighing down.

It is advisable to have a light lunch based on carbohydrates, take good care of the hydration throughout the day and a snack two / three hours before the start: a sandwich that is easily digestible with prosciutto or turkey breast, without sauces and without vegetables that can then give problems in the gastro-intestinal level during the run. 

Hydration is important, so during the afternoon drink water with a high fixed residue and about half an hour before the start drink a solution of carbohydrates and mineral salts, or carbohydrates and amino acids (for example Carbo plus). 

The recommended nutritional strategy depends on the step an athlete will be able to take during the 21.097 km, the standard recommendations are always the same: 

-        start the race well hydrated 

-        Take a “shottino” (like the Prestart shot) before the start to support concentration and muscular blood circulation 

-        Take a gel after the first 70 minutes of running, near the refreshment point if it is hypertonic, otherwise outside if it is isotonic. 

How can I tell the difference between a hyper gel and a hypo gel ? 

Companies specify it on the label if a gel is isotonic, in fact we see that on the front of Carbo Sprint Ultrarace is well emphasized! 

Otherwise it can be understood from the total volume, a gel that contains 25-35 ml of solution is hypertonic, therefore it will be taken near the refreshment point with water, not with salts, and an isotonic gel can also be taken outside refreshment, without taking water immediately after. 

Good run.

Eyob Faniel challenges the Kenyan Mwangi to the Jesolo Moonlight Half Marathon to break the race record
Saturday, May 25 the Italian runner will be at the start line of the half marathon in the moonlight (start at 7.30pm)

"I am very attached of this race - said Eyob - because my sports ascent begins with the victory of the Moonlight Half Marathon in 2015. This year I come back to compete on the 21K and to improve the record of the route made last year by my training collegue, Shumay Mogos Solomon (1h03'05 ”). I recently made a personal record but, before Moonlight, I want to try to beat the best Italian performance of Stefano Baldini's 10 km (28 '10 "- Arco 2002) and for this I will fly to Manchester on May, 19 to race the Great Manchester Run”. "The highlight of the year - Faniel continues - will be the World Championships in Doha (QAT, 28 Sept - 6 Oct) where I will run the marathon in particular conditions. I will go to Doha with the National team to do an inspection after the Moonlight Halfmarathon ". 

The cast of the top atheltes of the Jesolo Moonlight Half Marathon is going to be defined, it is currently composed by the Kenyan Paul Kariuki Mwangi (1h00'42 "), Kipkorir, Murithi and Tiongik; from the Rwandan Hitimana and from the Italians Boudalia, El Mazoury and Graziotto . 

As always, the prize pool will be rich not only for top runners but also for sports groups. Venicemarathon will award in cash the first 5 largest sports clubs from outside the region and the first 5 Veneto sports groups. Rich prizes also for all the Fidal categories, which will be awarded directly on stage in Piazza Milano starting at 11pm. 

The start of the Half Marathon will be at 7.30pm and will be preceded by half an hour from the start of the 10K (7pm) in Piazza Milano area , where the Jesolo Moonlight Village will be built, which from Friday, May 24 (15-20 pm) will animate the square with music, exhibition stands and with the passage of all the runners who will collect the bib numbers. 

At just over two weeks from the event, the number of registrations is already reaching 5,000 and, subject to early closure for sold out, registrations will remain open until Friday 24 May.
