Street closures and bus detours in place for Rome's 2019 marathon.
Bus routes in central Rome will be redirected on Sunday 7 April for the 2019 Maratona di Roma, now in its 25th edition.
The 42-km race, which begins and ends at the Colosseum, will also lead to the closure of the Colosseo metro station.
The time limit for crossing the finish line is seven hours, and anyone who fails to reach the halfway mark within three and a half hours will be required to give up.
Those who last the distance however will be rewarded with a medal, a goody bag and a foil wrap to stay warm.
In addition to the main event there is the non-competitive “Stracittadina” 5-km fun run in the Circus Maximus area.
For full details see marathon website.
