The second edition of the Rome Half Marathon Via Pacis, whose core principles are "peace, integration, inclusion and solidarity", is scheduled for Sunday 23 September.
The event is organised by Rome city authorities and the Vatican's Pontifical Council for Culture, in collaboration with the Italian Athletics Federation and Italy's Olympic committee, and is open to all who oppose "violence, racism and discrimination", according to organisers.
The 21-km race begins at Via della Conciliazione at 09.00 with the route incorporating sites associated with various religious denominations including St Peter's, the Synagogue, the Mosque, the Valdese Church and the Orthodox Church.
There is also a non-competitive 5-km run, called Running For Peace, starting at 09.30. For details and registration for both events see website.
