THE DAY OF THE MARATHON
Getting to the start
BY SUBWAY. This is the system that we recommend: using the metro you’ll help the Milan Marathon to be more eco-friendly! The closest stops to the start are:
- PALESTRO on line M1 (red)
- TURATI on line M3 (yellow)
BY TRAIN (S-LINES). Even with these trains you can get close to the start area in a cheap and easy way. The train stop is PORTA VENEZIA, on the following s-lines:
- line S1 (Saronno – Milano – Lodi)
- line S2 (Mariano Comense – Milano – Milan Rogoredo)
- line S5 (Varese – Milano – Treviglio)
- line S6 (Novara – Milano – Treviglio)
- line S13 (Pavia – Milano Bovisa)
BY TRAIN. From MILANO CENTRALE station you can reach the start area on foot in about 20 minutes (follow Via Vittor Pisani, Piazza della Repubblica, Via Turati and Via Palestro). Alternatively, you can use the subway (yellow line M3) for two stops to TURATI.
BY CAR. You definitely don’t want to reach the start area by car. If you can’t do without car, we suggest that you use the car parks available at numerous metro stations, which offer daily discount rates daily. You can find more information on the ATM website.
How to submit the bag with your personal clothes for the individual marathon
You can only use the special bag that you will receive as goody bag. Other bags will not be accepted! In case you have requested the delivery of your bib number at home, you will receive a bag in the pre-start area. Do not forget to identify the bag with the appropriate label stating your race number. After arrival, you can pick up the bag while exhibiting the bib number. Please remember that the bag must contain only the personal clothes that you will need after the race. We suggest that you do not leave any object of value in the bag: the organization will not be held liable for loss or theft of such objects.
How to submit the bag with your personal clothes for the relay marathon
Alongside the bib number at each athlete will be given a label (bearing the race number) to be placed on the bag provided by the organization in which personal clothes can be stored. The bag, appropriately numbered, will be the only container accepted by the organization. No transport service for the bags will be provided. Before the race, each runner will have to check the bag at the end of his leg, or give the bag to the next team member that will deposit it on his behalf. The bag deposit areas are arranged at the 3 changeover points and at the finish. It is advisable not to leave personal belongings (mobile, wallet, etc.) inside the bags. While ensuring the utmost care in the custody of the bag, the organization will not be responsible for any theft.
Start procedure individual marathon
From 8:15 you will be able to access the starting sectors. The entrances to the “corrals” will be manned by volunteers who will check your race number. Marathon runners will be able to take position on both starting lanes leading to the portal. The start of the 1st European Company individual marathon and of the EA7 Milano Marathon 2018 will be given at 9:00 am.
Start procedure relay marathon
From 8:45 you will be able to access the starting sectors. The entrances to the “corrals” will be manned by volunteers who will check your race number. Relay marathon runners will be able to take position on dedicated starting lane leading to the portal. The start of the 1st European Company team relay marathon and of the EA7 Milano Marathon 2018 will be given at 10:00 am.
The Milano Marathon’s course is a loop route, with start and finish in Corso Venezia, and minimal elevation changes. The course has been measured and approved at national and international level by official FIDAL and IAAF/AIMS measurers. Every kilometer is signalled with appropriate signage at the side of the road.
We remind you that the trajectory used for the measurement corresponds to the minimum distance travelled. It is virtually impossible that you can follow the same trajectory in the race, for which it is normal that your GPS watch records a distance travelled superior to 42.195 km even by several hundred meters.
The course of relay marathon will be divided into 4 fractions; each of them has to be run by a different team member. The exact length of each fraction will be communicated as soon as possible.
Timekeeping individual marathon
Timing Data Service (TDS) will time your race from the moment you will pass under the starting gate: in this way, even if you will start from one of the last corrals, you will have the information about your net time. Along the course, TDS will take your time at 10 km, at the half marathon (km 21.097) and at 30 km. And of course at the finish… Even if we will provide you the net time, please remember that according to the official rules, rankings will be based on the “gun time”, that is the time calculated from the starter’s gunshot.
Timekeeping relay marathon
The time keeper is Timing Data Service srl. Time measurement and processing of the rankings will be electronically made with a system based on an active transponder (“chip”) that will be delivered attached to a bracelet that will act as a “baton” among the relay runners. It is strictly forbidden to tamper with the chip. Athletes who in any way damage the “chip” will not be timed and will not be in the rankings. For each team it will be recorded the official race time (from the moment the first runner pass under the starting gate until the last runner crosses the finish line) and the time of each leg (with time detection at the entry and exit of each zone change to allow all runners to receive a time measured on the same distance, regardless of the actual place where the baton exchange will take place). The “chips” (bracelet) must be delivered to the appropriate staff after the finish line. Athletes who do not finish the race or who, for whatever reason, not return the “chip” at the end of the race must send it to: Timing Data Service srl – Via delle Macchine, 14 – Spinea (VE). Otherwise, they will be obliged to pay € 25.00 in compensatory damages
Time limits individual marathon
The time limit to finish the marathon is 6h30′. There will also be two intermediate “gates”: at 12:15 at the half marathon and at 13:30 at the 30th km. If, unfortunately, you will not be able to pass the gates in time, you may be invited to board the buses for withdrawn athletes, or at least to continue running on the sidewalk and not on the road.
We all know that it’s very unpleasant to be asked to quit the marathon, but please remember that our staff will do that, if necessary, to ensure your safety. After the times indicated above, in fact, the streets will gradually be re-opened to car traffic, according to the race authorisation issued by the Municipality.
Time limits relay marathon
Time limit to finish the relay marathon is 5h30’. There will also be two intermediate “gates”:
- at the 2nd changeover point (km 22 approx.), after 2h55’ from the start (approximately at 12:55pm)
- at the 3rd changeover point (km 30 approx.), after 3h55’ from the start (approximately at 01:55pm)
Athletes who do not respect the passage times at the gates will be invited by the marathon staff to board the buses for withdrawn athletes or continue running on the sidewalk and not on the road. These measures are necessary to ensure the safety of athletes. After the times indicated above, in fact, a progressive reopening of the roads will occur, on basis of the authorization granted by the Municipality.
Refreshment and sponging stations for individual marathon
Refreshment stations are located at every 5 kilometres along the route and at the finish line. In every refreshment you will find water, sport drink, fruit and biscuits. An advice: don’t wait to be hungry or thirsty to eat or drink something, but try to take something at every refreshment, in this way you will reduce the possibilities to see your body going in crisis.
Celiac disease is a permanent intolerance to gluten, a protein found in wheat (spelled and khorasan wheat, commonly called kamut), rye, barley, oats or their hybridized strains and products. For intolerant people, AIC Lombardia offers a dedicated service with 3 gluten-free refreshment points at km 20, km 30 and at the finish.
Every five kilometers (from km 7.5) you will also find sponging stations with water tanks in which you can soak your personal sponges (you will find 2 sponges inside the goody bag and more sponges will be available in the pre-start area) to cool you off. A small effort on your part will help us to reduce the environmental impact of the marathon in a meaningful way. After all, the view of thousands of sponges used and immediately cast on the ground is certainly not pleasant to see!
Refreshment and sponging stations for relay marathon
For all participants in the Relay Marathon 2018 there will be a final refreshment bag to be delivered at the end of each leg, inside the “changeover village”. In case of need the participants can use the refreshment and sponging stations planned for the marathon, positioned every 5km along the way.
Pacers (only for individual marathon)
Different groups of pacers will help marathon runners to maintain a constant pace and get to the finish line in the time established in advance. The pacers will be easily recognizable by their clothing an by colored balloons.
The pacers will be available for the following final times:
Choose the group most suited to your needs.
The target times are “official times” (i.e. from the starting gunshot) and any delay at the start will be recovered in the first half of the race.
Transport service for withdrawn athletes
Organization will provide “sweep” buses along the route, which will transport the athletes to the finish area, where they will be able to pick-up their bags and receive assistance.
An adequate medical service will be guaranteed along the course, including fixed locations and emergency vehicles. BSO srl, partner of Europ Assistance, will manage the medical service for the marathon. The operational procedures include the presence on the whole course of ambulances, medical cars, medical squads on foot, points of first intervention with health professionals at each relay change zone and a “Health Citadel” in Corso Venezia on a surface of more than 400sqm capable of delivering highly specialized assistance. The technological equipment available includes ultrasound devices, equipment for blood tests and devices for telemedicine, which will enable a continuous exchange of information between the field rescuers, the “health citadel” and intensive care units involved. It will also be present an ECMOteam with two machines for the extracorporeal support made available by Prof. Alberto Zangrillo, Primary of anaesthesiology and reanimation of the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan.
AFTER THE RACE
