Is the racecourse flat? Will I find many cobbled segments? ↓
The course includes almost all the most beautiful and important monuments, streets and squares of Rome. At the same time, we contained the number of the direction changes (77) and that of cobblestones kilometers (about 7.6, located mainly along the start and finish area). There are some hills but not of great importance. For more information, see the page dedicated to the path and altimetry.

I?ve registered, paid and submitted all the required documents. Why I haven?t been assigned a bib number yet? ↓
We need to carefully scrutinize all documents. We check the copy of the payment and the validity of your membership card. If everything is correct, we give the ok to the system. This operation could take from 3 to 10 working days. In the days close to the change of registration fee, times could take longer, considering the large number of requests that come to us all together. Subsequently, the system will assign the bib number and you confirmation letter will be available in your reserved area.
By what standard is my bib number assigned? ↓
It depends on your marathon PB in the last 2 years. Should you not have one, or have one older than 2 years, you will be assigned to the last starting corral.
