2019 Race for the Cure in Rome

Komen Race for the Cure raises awareness for breast cancer.

The 20th edition of the Komen Italia Race for the Cure takes place on the streets of central Rome on Sunday 19 May to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer.

The annual event is divided into three categories: a non-competitive 5-km run; a 2-km walk; and a competitive 5-km race.

The sporting event is preceded by a three-day festival of health and fitness workshops, family activities and free medical advice at the Race Village in the Circus Maximus beginning on 16 May.

The money raised goes towards funding educational and early detection programmes to help fight breast cancer. The event is open to men, women and children, and there is a special “Women in Pink” category, for women who have faced or are facing breast cancer.

The race begins at 10.00 at the Circus Maximus, passing through Piazza Venezia and past the Colosseum before finishing back at the starting point.

Full information, including how to donate and register, can be found on the Race for the Cure Italia website.
