Not for the faint of heart, the 23rd 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 and Piazza del Popolo. The registration-for those brave enough to attempt it, is open until March 31st. If you’re looking for a lighter workout, you can register for the 4,5km Fun Run up until the day before.
April 2, 8.40am
start and finish in via dei Fori Imperiali
