ROME – Acea Run Rome The Marathon. This is the new name of the Rome marathon, which will take place on Sunday 29 March 2020. This much awaited edition is loaded with meaning. It marks the beginning of a new pathway for the Capitoline marathon, managed by the consortium formed by Infront, Corriere dello Sport-Stadio, Italia Marathon Club and Atielle, an organising committee that has many projects and expectations in mind, and in its legs. This innovative concept encompasses an international vision, a great city and a unique cultural and artistic heritage.
With less than six months to go, commitment is at its fullest and there is a lot of excitement around the boom in registrations that took just one week after they opened up on the website http://www.runromethemarathon.com/.
Acea Run Rome The Marathon, a race awarded the prestigious Silver Label Iaaf, will see thousands of running fans from Italy and around the world set off on 29 March. In past editions, 45% of participants came from abroad. This figure puts it among the highest in the ranking of the most important international marathons.
THE HISTORY – Those who choose Acea Run Rome The Marathon will feel like they are going back 2000 years, into the history of Roma Caput Mundi, its Empire and the immensity of the Eternal City. This journey lasts 42.195 km, passing through dozens of unique historical sites with a route that goes from the Colosseum to the Imperial Forums, from Castel Sant’Angelo to the Basilica of San Pietro, from Piazza Navona to Piazza di Spagna, Piazza del Popolo, Piazza Venezia, the Lungotevere and its famous bridges, the Arch of Constantine and much more. The marathon runners in Rome will feel like invincible gladiators, and throughout the strain of the race they will experience joys, sensations and emotions that only Rome can evoke.
THE SPONSORS – Acea Run Rome the Marathon is not just a marathon, a relay race and a fun run, but a value-driven, positive and unifying brand that embodies the values of sport, of being together and of a healthy life. All this will take place through a series of sporting events, athletic preparations, conferences, engagement activities and installations that will come to life throughout the year and culminate in the weekend of the city-wide celebration on 28 and 29 March. Placing a brand alongside the Acea Run Rome The Marathon means embodying its values and embracing Rome’s great Unesco heritage.
NEW ELEMENTS – Acea Run Rome The Marathon is an event for everyone, and as such one of the new elements of the XXVI edition is the new Acea Run4Rome Relay, a relay marathon for 4-person teams, linked to a charity programme. It will also take place on the morning of Sunday 29 March, so that everyone – including the newbies and those who prefer to run less demanding distances than the full 42 km – can play a starring role and dream of a goal together with their companions in adventure, to earn a legendary medal.
CONFIRMATION – Space for families from 0 to 99 years. As in the past, on Saturday March 28 there will also be space for the Fun Run. It can be treated as a race or even just a walk at any pace, and it is open to everyone, whatever their age. Over the course of 4.5 km through the historic centre of Rome, you can take over the city for a few hours and experience it with a smile and serenity, which go hand in hand with well-being and fun. Other exciting competitions and activities for engaging the city will be revealed soon. They will be the driving force of a great Italian sport-filled Saturday.
