Marathon Runners Race Through Flooded Venice

Venice might be flooded but that hasn’t stopped some locals going about their daily business and even taking part in a MARATHON.

In this remarkable footage runners can be seen wading through ankle-deep water as they try to carry on with their plans as normal despite the unprecedented flooding.

Rain-soaked residents and tourists can also be seen sitting outside at restaurant tables and cafes and taking in the sights of the city, despite the horrendous conditions.

Silvana Di Puorto filmed the incredible scenes.
