Conditions were horrendous.
My chip time was 4:38:37 – the last 2km took sixteen minutes.
35-40km took about 47 minutes!
Not easy running into very strong winds and freezing rain.
Not one of my most pleasant running experiences.
As the race website comments, “The 27th Venice Marathon had severe weather conditions with rain, wind and high tide.
The winners were Kenyan Philemon Kipchumba Kisang (2:17:00) and Ethiopian Emebt Etea Bedada (2:38:11)”.
