A board for all those considering running the Rome Marathon in 2013
I'm trying to decide between Rome and Paris. Rome has an advantage in that my brother in law lives nearby so I could save on accommodation hassle. But then Paris is on my birthday! Decisions decisions! I'm liking the look of the Lake Garda one later in the year too!
lake garda sounds like a good one!
Yeah Lake Garda looks great- I love the idea of getting a boat across to the start and doing a point to point round the lake. The north end of the lake where it's based is really beautiful
I'm in too. Do I need to get a gp to sign a form?
I'm a member of scottish athletics so sent them a scan of my membership card, hoping that's enough
Rome was just amazing - it was my second and for me blew London away. So many amazing memories and I've still got some of the Maratona di Roma advertising at the bottom of my garden attached to a fence!!! You see EVERYTHING!!!
Mark - what are the cobblestones like? I've heard they cover the first two and the last four kilometres around the coliseum. Are they killers on your ankles or not as bad as people say? (Am hoping for the latter..)
how many people run Rome? not sure I fancy london because of the 35,000 entry...
I think I read that this year there were about 12,000 ish runners?
oh, ok, thats not to bad then..
Entered Rome this week. It will be my 4th marathon and I am hoping tp break 5 hrs. Best so far is 5,15.
Took my wife to Rome for her birthday last year and thought it was a beautiful city.( Lots of Grafitti though??)
Already excited to run around all of the wonderful landmarks. London could learn from it.
I currently run 20+ miles a week and am starting a 20 week programme at the end of the month
Good luck to all and I will keep an eye on this forum over the coming months
Tekky, I have sort of cobbled one together from my previous marathons.
I like to get a half in by about week 5 and a longest run of 22 miles in week 15.
I am a real plodder and just like to get miles in the bank. I will probably do about 450.
Have you done a marathon before?
