A board for all those considering running the Rome Marathon in 2013
has anyone got their bib number/confirmation email or anything in the private area of the web site? They say they allocate numbers every 3-7 days.
I have had an email asking for my medical certificate and I have booked a doctors appt. to get it completed.
Don't know if there is a time limit on getting things back.
I have booked my hotel - The Heart of Rome. Good reviews on Tripadvisor.
The hard part starts soon.
I did berlin and am still recovering...only 5 months to go for this one....
Hi all - how's the running going? I've been gradually increasing my distance over the last couple of months from 6 to 13 miles and am doing the Salisbury Half Marathon next Sunday - psychologically I wanted to know that I could at least make it round half way before I started my actual training plan. I've used a Hal Higdon 18 week plan and jiggled the days around slightly to fit in with my weekly club run and club track session. Starting my actual 18 week plan mid-November so will have a couple of weeks break between the Salisbury Half and starting the plan. Finding the mileage increase manageable at the moment but I'm sure that will change as it creeps higher!
I haven't had anything through about medical etc but I'm running as part of a charity group so I imagine everything will go via them - although I told them I am part of an affiliated running club so hopefully I won't need to, from what I've read. Need to raise £500 sponsorship so concentrating on getting that done before Christmas if I can - got £110 so far...
I only started running properly in January this year (previously had only done a couple of 5km races but nothing serious and only ever ran in the summer) so amazed to think that almost a year later I am marathon training - I didn't think I'd make it past March!
PS - I found this pdf online which outlines the route and pinpoints the main landmarks along the way so you know at what miles you'll see them. It also shows the elevation along the route - mainly flat but with a couple of inclines
there's a video on youtube of the whole course
Have just booked flights, hotel and paid for my race entry! Little worried about the cobblestones but excited to see all the sights on my way round.
kick started my training today with a cold miserable half marathon...can't wait till January's long runs
