City and Vatican co-organise Rome Half Marathon Via Pacis.
The Rome Half Marathon Via Pacis, schedued for 17 September, is described as the first multi-religious half marathon for peace.
The event is being 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.
With its core principles as "peace, integration, inclusion and solidarity", the half marathon is open to all who oppose "violence, racism and discrimination", according to organisers.
The 21-km race begins at St Peter's Square at 09.00 on Sunday 17 September and will be televised live on RAI Sport.
The race route will incorporate sites pertaining to five different religious denominations: St Peter's, the Synagogue, the Mosque, the Valdese Church and the Orthodox Church.
There is also a non-competitive 5-km run. For details including registration see website.
