On April 2, 2017 the 23th edition of the Rome Marathon is in program, one of the most fascinating in the world, a sporting event that has become international.
In fact, this year will be reached record numbers with over 15,000 runners participating, which about 6000 coming from all over the world.
The race is scheduled for Sunday, April 2 at 8:40 hours with departure and arrival in Via dei Fori Imperiali.
As per tradition, the race route passes around the old town, then touching some outer areas, but no less fascinating, then come back and end up back in the city center.
Another sporting event to be held in parallel with the Rome Marathon will be, “The FunRun” named also “Stracittadina“, a non-competitive route of 4.5 km that goes around the Imperial Forum and the Circus Maximus, which will start at 09:00 AM, open to all: families with children and their pets, young people, old people, all united by a common desire to spend a beautiful day in the heart of the Eternal City.
Upon arrival of the Fun Run will be set up the Fun Village where thousands of people have taken part in the non-competitive race will find rest and where there will be a big party with many initiatives.
You can subscribe to the “Fun Run” at the Marathon Village on days 30, March 31, April 1, 2017 from 10AM to 8PM.
The Rome Marathon for those coming from outside Rome and abroad is also an inevitable opportunity to visit the city and spend a week-end or a longer holiday in the Eternal City.
