March 22, 2015, 8:50 am: runners, walkers, Eternal City’s lovers from all over the world save this date, the day of Rome Marathon 2015.
This traditional sport event, a major one in Italy due to the amount of participants, has come to the 21st edition. As usual, competitors will run for 42 km 195 m along a path which passes across several famous spots in the city center, leading to areas off the beaten tracks of tourists but still enchanting in their own way, to end up exactly where it all began: at via dei Fori Imperiali. Registration deadline expires on March 5. Maximum time to conclude the marathon is 7 hours, while on the ground of previous editions the professional runners’ time is actually estimated around 2 hours (2014 marathon was won by two Ethiopian athlets: Shume Hailu with his 2:09:47, and Ayelu Lemma with her 2:34:49).
Besides the Maratona di Roma, a non-competitive event will take place on the same day: the so called Romafun, “La Stracittadina”, an occasion open to everyone (youngsters, elderly, families with pets) to take together a 5 km walk from via dei Fori Imperiali (starting at 9:10 am) to Circo Massimo. Registration deadline in this case is just on the day before, March 21, upon € 8 fee (which gives right to the official t-shirt).
