Experience

Italy is a country that has fallen in love with the marathon. Orlando Pizzolato led the field to the finish twice in New York while followed by about 1,500 fellow countrymen. Gelindo Bordin claimed the gold in the 1988 Olympics. Thus, it is only fitting that Rome should have a world-class event. We have secured rooms at the beautifully-decorated Hotel Metropole within walking distance of the start and finish and many Rome landmarks. The March 18th event precedes the busy tourist season and hotel rates and airfares are a bit more reasonable. There is no better way to sight-see in this historic city than by foot and you will enjoy all of the significant points of interest along the way. The route is designed to include many classic monuments, buildings and piazzas. The "Stracittadina" 5K is scheduled to start immediately after the marathon start. Participants will be able to run in the old town centre past Piazza Venezia, Bocca della Verita, Teatro di Marcello, Circus Maximus, the Coliseum and the Roman Forum.
