Rome Marathon to celebrate 25 years

Runners can register until 25 March for 2019 marathon.

Registration for the 2019 Maratona di Roma, now in its 25th edition, is open until 25 March.

The 42-km race, which begins and ends at the Colosseum, takes place on Sunday 7 April.

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.
