Regain your freedom
and colour the parks
around you with
your free t-shirt
On Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 September all over Italy and in Rome, you can take part in the FUN RACE, the 5km Stracittadina (Derby) combined with the Acea Run Rome The Marathon. Innovative, safe, sustainable.
Traditionally known as the “Rome derby”, this institution has become an annual ritual for 50 thousand people.
EVERYWHERE – This year we know it’s special, and that’s why we can do more – much more. The big news is that you can take part no matter where you are. The 5km distance is suitable for everyone, even you! You can run or walk, and wherever you live you’ll be part of a memorable weekend focused on returning to normalcy, well-being, friendship and fun.
THE FREE YELLOW JERSEY – Close your eyes and imagine a yellow trail running the entire length of Italy: along the cycle paths, in the parks, in all the open spaces. An immense community that you, a fundamental runner, are part of. Strength lies in the group, distant but united. Beautiful, bright, strong, proud. This is the innovative and safe 5km Fun Race. You will have the bib with your number, the honour of the medal and the technical “yellow” shirt signed by Joma delivered to you within a few days of your registration. You can call it the ‘Yellow Fun Race”, because this will be a yellow wave done in great style. Yellow, yes: yellow like the sun, like life, heat, energy. Join and follow the trail, become a vital member of the yellow-line that will virtually unite all of Italy on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th September.
IN SAFETY – A safe event, run where, how, when and with whoever you choose, without any potential crowding. But there’ll be no lack of fun and involvement. Take back ownership of nature, the pure air and the open spaces, because with the Fun Race all the parks, gardens, and cycle paths will become your perfect route to indulge your passion for 5km. Turn Italy’s parks yellow with your t-shirt. The organiser will soon offer suggestions for special routes where you can run and play sports in Lazio and the city of Rome, and for other places, too.
FOR EVERYONE – The Fun Race really is life-style, it is fashion, it is conquering your city and its greenest and most beautiful spaces for one day. You can make the city a little more yours. The Fun Race is great for people of all ages, from 0 to 99 years old. Children in the buggy? No problem!
Fun Race is a free-access, non-competitive race, with no need for any competitive medical certificate or federal membership. It was created to give everyone the chance to have fun, to make the whole of Italy great and more united. The power of sport, the power of a great event like Acea Run Rome The Marathon.

Like a gladiator
A medal as a symbol of your 5 km walk or run. A medal as a prize, to keep as a wonderful memento of 2021 achievements, memories that speak of rebirth, of a new beginning. At the centre of the medal is the Colosseum. The most visited monument in the world, a symbol of Rome, the largest amphitheatre in the world, it could hold from 50,000 to 87,000 spectators. In ancient times it was also used for gladiator shows and in 1980 it was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List.
