The third leg’s length will be inferior to 10km making it eligible for athletes who have reached 16 years of age before or on the date of the event.

Yes, the registration to the Run4Rome Relay Race is possible through one of the Charities attached to the Run4Rome Charity Program.
The goal of the relay race is very simple:
1) have fun with your friends
- 2) raise funds to support important charity projects
COVID-19 SECURITY MEASURES
WHAT ARE THE MEASURES TAKEN BY THE ORGANISATION OF RUN ROME THE MARATHON TO CONTAIN THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS COVID-19 IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE REGULATIONS CURRENTLY IN FORCE IN ITALY?
The organizer will be in compliance with the regulations in force in Italy for the containment measures for Covid 19. In the weeks before the event the necessary documentation to respect the event will be published on the official media channels and will be sent directly to all the participants.
We advise athletes to view the organisational protocol for road races as updated from time to time on the FIDAL website www.fidal.it.
The registration fee is freely determined by each of the charities. Remember that this is not a simple registration fee, but a real donation to a charity project among the many that you can choose to support.
No, registration and payment must be made in the manner indicated above.
The finalisation/registration must in any case take place on the event website, in the appropriate section by 22/03/2022 .
Yes, the medical certificates or the substitutive statement of possession must be shown only upon collection of the bibs.
The online registration portal automatically sends a confirmation email to each team member when the Charity validates the team registration. Further practical information will be sent to participants a few days before the race.
The order of the relay racers may be changed up until the day before the race.
Further information on the procedure will be sent to those registered in the vicinity of the competition.
A few days before the race, all team members will receive a valid email as an official “confirmation letter”.
This email will contain all the basic instructions for picking up the bib and participating in the race. You do not need to print a hard copy of the email itself; you can present it on a device such as a smartphone or tablet.
You will be able to pick up your bib (and race pack) at our Run Rome the Marathon Expo village upon presentation of a valid identity document and confirmation letter. The Expo will be open to the public on Friday 25 and Saturday 26 March2022 from 9:00 until 20:00 and is situated at the Salone delle Fontane, Via Ciro il Grande 10.
Recommended Subway stops to reach the Expo:
- Eur Palasport (B blue line) 14 min on foot (1Km)
- Eur Magliana (B blue line) 13 min on foot (900m)
The bibs and race pack must be collected at the same time by all members of the team or also just by a team representative or a delegate for the team.
To collect the bibs, the members, team representative or delegate of the team must present the following documents:
- valid identity document (for all team members)
- confirmation letter email (also on smartphone or tablet)
- medical certificates or declarations of their possession (for all team members)
- documentation (instructions on www.runromethemarathon.com) for the containment of Covid-19 (for all team members)
- Written proxy for the delegate signed by all team members
Special safety procedures will be put in place in accordance with the provisions of the relevant legislation. In particular:
- It is not permitted to bring inside the technical area any container (bag, backpack, etc.) other than the special bag provided by the organisation (and marked with the appropriate label with your bib number), inside which the individual items must be placed in bulk, to allow for an accurate and quick check by security staff.
Further information and details, also regarding health protocols, will be provided to the athletes in the weeks before the race with reference to the meeting places and times of the individual legs and summarized on the “race day info”.
The Organisers will provide a free bag deposit in the areas adjacent to the start of each leg. Management of the relay bag deposit will be detailed later on.
It is recommended not to leave personal belongings (mobile phone, wallet, etc.) inside the bags. While ensuring the utmost care in the custody of the bag, the organisation will not be liable for any theft.
Further information will be given later
All athletes registered for the 2020 edition, which could not take place due to the health emergency, will be able to convert their registration to the 2022 edition in the following ways:
- free of charge until 03/02/2022;
- at the cost of € 40,00 per team from 04/02/2022 until 10/03/2022*,

THE BIG DAY
Run4Rome will be on Sunday 27 March 2022, with starting point in Via dei Fori Imperiali at about 9:00 AM (start time may vary).
The official departure time will be communicated to participants in the days before the event. Please note that variations in the timetable may be possible due to particular technical/organisational requirements.
PLEASE NOTE: The night between the 26th and 27th of March you will have to update your watch one hour ahead due to 2022 daylights savings time.
The meeting point will be communicated on “Race Day Info”. The start of the first leg of Run4Rome Relay will be at about 8:50 AM in Via dei Fori Imperiali.
The runners of the second, third and fourth legs will have to position themselves in the relay transition area corresponding to their relay number. Each relay transition area is indicated by numbered pallets. Your relay number is shown on the bib. The relay transition areas list (and the public transport to get there) is inside “regulation”. The leg switch process will be communicated later on Race Day Info.
In accordance with the regulations, refreshment points are provided at the finish line and along the route, no more than 5 kilometres apart. At the refreshment points, water, supplements, fruit and biscuits will be present. Each participant will receive a final refreshment at the end of their leg.
The measurement of the times and the processing of the timing list will be carried out by means of a system based on an electronic transponder (“chip”), which will be delivered with instructions upon collection of the bib. Athletes and/or teams that in any way detach and/or damage the “chip” cannot be timed and will not appear in the timing list (in team alphabetical order).
An adequate medical assistance service will be guaranteed on the route, with fixed stations and vehicles following the race. There will be one station at the end of each section.
After the finish-line of each leg, the relay racers will receive participation medal, the final refreshment and other post-finish services (bag deposit, WC, etc).
