Not for the faint of heart, the 25th edition of the Rome Marathon will cover the usual 26 miles and the route will start and finish at the Fori Imperiali. The race will circle around Ostiense up to Ponte Milvio in Flaminio, zig-zaging across the Tevere. Perhaps one of the most scenic marathon routes, runners will pass by major monuments such as St. Peter’s, Castel Sant’Angelo and Piazza del Popolo. The registration-for those brave enough to attempt it, is open until March 25th.
If you’re looking for a lighter workout, you can register for the 5km Stracittadina up until the day before.
Make sure to get to Expo Marathon (Ragusa Off on Via Tuscolana, 179), open from 4-6 April as a place for runners to connect, relax, attend concerts and shows and for the Stracittadina registrations.
April 7 at 8.30am
Start and finish in via dei Fori Imperiali (Colosseum)
