Rome MarathonThe heat is on for the Rome Marathon, an event that welcomes competitors from all over the world.
Of course we support all those who love their sport, but there are some events that naturally jump out from the crowd and find themselves a place right in the centre of our hearts. The Rome Marathon is a perfect example. Now in its 22nd year, the Rome Marathon once more brings sport to Rome, a city that is more than blessed with its fair share of art and history. If it’s normally the names of Ethiopian athletes that you associate with marathons, think again. The Rome Marathon includes about sixty thousand competitors from all over the world. The 42km route stretches from the Colosseum to the Monumento a Vittorio Emanuele II, and if you’re not in the mood for running, you can join the spectators watching the world famous athletes compete. However, if you do want to kick up the dust of the Via dei Fori Imperiali as part of the Rome Marathon, you first need to apply on their official website. Let’s add straightaway that it’s not just sport that provides the thrills during the Rome Marathon, you can also get a taste of Rome’s sense of fun. Runners dressed in historical costume will introduce you to Rome’s humorous side.
