E mentre i preparativi fervono sempre di più, vi ricordiamo qui di seguito alcuni dettagli importanti. Chi desideri partecipare sappia che… è ancora in tempo!
– la Maratona partirà alle ore 8:50 da Via dei Fori Imperiali, che sarà anche il traguardo;
parallelamente alla corsa di 42 km si terrà un evento non competitivo aperto a tutti: la ROMAFUN Stracittadina, 5 km di camminata che inizieranno alle 9:10 sempre da Via dei Fori Imperiali (ma con punto di ritrovo in Via Cavour alle ore 8:00) e si concluderanno al Circo Massimo;
– date ultime per la registrazione: 5 marzo per la Maratona (per ulteriori informazioni consultare il sito ufficiale; 21 marzo per la Stracittadina (costo: € 8,00 inclusa la maglietta dell’evento);

INTERNAZIONALI DI TENNIS 2015: AL VIA LE PRE-QUALIFICAZIONI

Già fervono i preparativi per i prestigiosi Internazionali di Tennis, che come da tradizione Roma ospiterà nell’incantevole cornice del Foro Italico a primavera, precisamente dal 9 al 17 maggio 2015.
Più che di preparativi logistici, in realtà si tratta dei tornei di pre-qualificazione che hanno già preso avvio in varie zone di Italia da qualche giorno. Sul modello dello Slam americano, infatti, la celebre competizione internazionale di Roma ha inaugurato dal 2011 una nuova tradizione: ovvero dare la possibilità a qualunque giocatore iscritto alla FIT, senza restrizioni legate al livello o alla classifica, di poter gareggiare sui campi rossi del Foro Italico affianco ai più grandi tennisti della scena internazionale.
I biglietti per il grande torneo di maggio sono già in vendita sui siti officiali, e partono circa da €17, a seconda della partita.
Gli Internazionali di Tennis rappresentano un’ottima occasione per visitare la Città Eterna sotto i raggi primaverili: Yes Hotel è sempre a vostra disposizione per ulteriori dettagli sul torneo e gli altri avvenimenti della Capitale!
