These increasingly widespread professionals play a crucial role in ensuring good sports performance.

The competition is open to all registered psychologists and psychology students.

An international-level setting for this 1st Italian Sports Psychologists Championship (FIPsiS).

Verona, with its charm and historical and artistic beauty, will once again be the protagonist and attract thousands of runners from all over the world to the starting line.

The half marathon, included in the race program in 2023, was the seventh half marathon in Italy, out of over 180, in terms of number of participants.

In the lead-up to the event, Sports Psychologists registered with the Federation (FIPsiS), precisely to seal the importance of their role, will support athletes with specific mental training techniques, to help them interpret the fatigue and emotional commitment associated with endurance in the right way and translate them into a successful performance not only in terms of chronometric performance but also of emotional satisfaction.

Among the planned initiatives there will also be a conference by FIPsiS on the eve of the event, Saturday, November 16th.

"After the 2023 Italian Fidal Marathon Championships, Verona is once again the protagonist with this new Italian Sports Psychologists Championship (FIPsiS)," says organizational director Stefano Stanzial. "We are proud of this new initiative and of building something together with the Italian Federation of Sports Psychologists. We believe that their profession is fundamental for all sports and in particular for a running and endurance competition like the Eurospin Verona Run Marathon. Verona is ready to welcome psychologists from all over Italy with their families."

Dr. Francesca Stecchi, President of the Veneto Regional Committee of the Italian Federation of Sports Psychologists, releases this statement:

"This collaboration underscores the crucial importance of mental well-being in sport, highlighting the fundamental role of sports psychologists in supporting athletes of all levels. Our presence at the Verona Run demonstrates the recognition and increasing value placed on our professional figure. Our work is not only aimed at improving performance but also at the overall well-being of athletes. In fact, an athlete who feels good and is more aware of himself will be able to perform well. It is a pleasure for us to be part of this event, as well as an important opportunity to raise awareness of our professional figure, eradicate certain stigmas and have the possibility of helping athletes, through targeted mental training techniques for endurance races, to face the competition with greater mental strength. The pre-race conference will be an excellent opportunity to focus on the importance of our work with athletes, clubs, coaches and parents, illustrate the mental training techniques we use and clarify the role of our professional figure."
