The 2022 Rome Marathon will take place in Italy on Sunday, March 27. The 27th edition of the marathon will begin at 8:30 a.m. local / 2:30 a.m. ET. Here in this article, you are going to know the time, route, and how to watch.
The Rome Marathon is a prestigious and popular event, one of the most scenic marathon courses in the world, and now also available to watch as a live stream, bringing a wider global audience to this fabulous city.
When it comes to top marathon locations, there can be few global locations more scenic and positively swimming in historical monuments to run through than Rome. If it’s true that the surrounding scenery can help take your mind off your aching limbs then that seems a huge positive to me!
According to the race official website, more than 10,000 participants have signed up for the event, which is huge, considering that the last edition was staged about six months ago, last September.
All participants will receive a free souvenir T-shirt in technical running fabric, which will be signed by the technical partner Joma.
