STRACITTADINA FUN RACE – Today, Wednesday 29th January, exactly two months after the Acea Run Rome The Marathon, registration for the Fun Race, the Stracittadina of Saturday 28th March officially opens, starting at 3pm from Fori Imperiali and finishing at Circo Massimo.
It will be a memorable day, with Rome appearing majestic and like a big film set, an open-air museum. 4.5 km to cover in the historic centre of Rome, from Fori Imperiali to Vittoriano, from Piazza Venezia to Circo Massimo. You can run or walk, no rush, just the desire to be there, to feel good, to experience Rome differently, to enjoy the streets without traffic and to breathe in the true essence of the Eternal City. Stracittadina is life-style, it’s fashion, it’s conquering the city for a day. Making it a little more people-friendly. Everyone can be there, old and young, from 0 to 99 years old.
It will be a Saturday of great celebration, with music from a central stage thanks to Radio 105 which will broadcast live from the Circo Massimo area. The involvement from 12 noon until closing at 8pm will be total, there’s a reason why it’s called a ‘Fun’ Race and as a whole, it is and will be a great spectacle.
Stracittadina Fun Race is a non-competitive, open-access race-walk, without the need for any competitive medical certificate or federal membership, created to entertain and have fun, to make Rome and the Acea Run Rome The Marathon great, even greater. In recent years, the record was 80,000 admissions, the most attended Stracittadina in the world, because everything becomes great in Rome.
The commitment of CSV Lazio (Volunteer Service Centre) is essential as it organises the 6th edition of Insieme per il Bene Comune [Together for the Common Good] – Good Deeds Day, the great event dedicated to volunteering and participation. Three days that are now a fixed appointment in Rome’s calendar and for everyone who wants to continue planting the good seeds of solidarity. An opportunity to rediscover volunteering, creativity and imagination.
Good Deeds Day is a major international event that, since 2007, has promoted the value of solidarity in 100 countries, with thousands of projects and millions of volunteers working to create the initiatives that keep it going. After the success of the previous years, the latest 2019 edition involved more than 250 organisations mobilised to organise the over 70 initiatives in Rome and the surrounding area.
Good Deeds Day will be on Saturday 28th March at the Circo Massimo area, the tens of thousands of participants in the Stracittadina Fun Race will get the chance to meet and get to know the many member associations active in the area. What is a day of celebration and entertainment with games, workshops, health prevention tests, becomes a moment of awareness and solidarity.
For all interested non-profit organisations, this translates into a fundraising opportunity because, thanks to the Stracittadina Charity Program, associations can collect registrations and retain part of the proceeds for their activities.
