I am a non-Italian citizens non-registered in Italy and non-registered with a foreign Athletics Federation affiliated to IAAF, how can I participate in the marathon?

Non-Italian citizens have the option to participate in marathons as competitive runners or as non-competitive runners. In this second scenario, there is no need for the athletes for a medical certificate and registration with Runcard. Instead, the athlete will be required to sign an ad hoc waiver form at the pick-up of the race packet.

However, please note that by choosing this option, the athlete will be starting in a separate grid at the end of the competitive event, independently of the relevant “Best Time”. The race time will not be displayed in the general leader board but will rather only be available next to the Athlete’s name, in alphabetical order, in a separate result table and the Athlete will not be able to receive any prizes.

May I register the morning of the race?

No, registrations are only online and will close on March 15, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. Anyhow, the race organizer reserves the right to close entries before the deadline or accept entries after official deadline.

May I pay when picking up the bib?

No, payment must be done together with the online registration.

May I register even if I do not have a Runcard membership or a medical certificate yet?

Yes, until March 19, 2020 you won’t be asked to enter any information regarding Runcard membership or medical certificate information.

Afterwards, it will be mandatory to provide the membership Runcard number in order to proceed. For registrations with Runcard, it will be necessary to upload the medical certificate on the Datahealth platform unless already uploaded on the Runcard Platform until 31/12/2019.

Participants who completed their entries before March 19, will be invited by e-mail to finalize their registration by filling in the missing information.

When is it necessary to use the DataHealth platform?

Please remember that the trajectory used for the measurement corresponds to the minimum walkable distance. It’s impossible for you to keep the same exact path during the race, hence its absolutely normal for your GPS to register a distance longer than 42,195km, it could also be of several hundreds of meters.

In this way you will be able to have your “net time” even if you start from one of the last corrals.

Even if you will be provided with your “net time”, please remember that according  to race rules, gun time will be utilized in determining the rankings, that is the time calculated from the starter’s gunshot.

Time limit

The Acea Run Rome The Marathon course will remain open until 6h30’ after gun time.

Runners will be informed of the maximum time details for the various split times. At the end of the marathon there will be a technical commission formed of a technical manager, possibly a FIDAL judge and a Municipal Police Command Rep, who will evaluate the actual closure of the route based onthe last participants. Athletes who do not respect the passage times at the gates will be invited by the operators to retire or to continue running on the pavement and not on the roadway, in compliance with the Highway Code, in order to protect their safety.
