Run a Marathon in Rome
The annual Rome Marathon (Maratona di Roma) will take place on March 22. The entire city center is cordoned off for this event and entertainment abounds on every street. The course takes in every major site in Rome from the Basilica of San Paolo to St. Peter's and beyond. If you'd like to participate in the marathon, they are still taking registration for runners. The fee is 50 Euros and can be submitted on-line or via fax. If you'd like to run through Rome but aren't quite up for a marathon, there is a fun run of 4 kilometers that takes place at the same time. Diverti te!!!
