The 26th edition of the Rome Marathon has been cancelled over fears of the coronavirus

Due to the ministerial decree of March 4th, stating that all sporting events must be suspended till April 3rd over the coronavirus, the Run Rome the Marathon event has been cancelled. The 26th edition will take place directly in 2021, with no date in 2020. 

For those who have already paid their registration fee, the fee will be valid and guaranteed for next year’s edition.

Not for the faint of heart, the 26th edition of the Rome Marathon will cover the usual 26 miles and the route will start and finish at the Fori Imperiali but with many new surprises.  The race will circle around the Vittoriano, Piazza Venezia, Circo massimo, zig-zaging across the Lungotevere, Castel Sant’Angelo and Via della Conciliazione. Runners will pass by major monuments such as St Peter’s Basilica and Piazza del Popolo.

If you’re looking for a lighter workout, you can register for the Stracittadina Fun Race that will take place the day before the marathon.
