Abano Terme - a world renowned thermal area - is the starting point of Padova HalfMarathon.

From its beginning the half marathon follows the same route as the marathon. The entrance in the city of Padua and its historical city centre has been designed so that the runners will get to see the most beautiful parts of the city: passing by Piazza dei Signori, Piazza della Frutta, Caffè Pedrocchi, Palazzo del Bo and the Basilica of S. Antonio. The finish line is set in the extraordinary scenery of Prato della Valle, Europe’ second biggest squares and certainly one of the most beautiful ones.
