Rome Marathon will take place on the 21st of March 2010. It will be a part of a group of events that will celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the 1960 Rome Olympics. The Rome Marathon will be dedicated to Abebe Bikila, the Ethiopian who won gold at the Olympics games in Rome in 1960, running barefoot. Bikila then regained in Tokyo 1964 and therefore the Rome marathon decided, since August last year, to twin with Tokio Marathon.
More than a month before the event, the organizers have communicated that the number of foreign runners will be the highest ever. In 2007, the number of foreign participation was 6109 and last year 5993. To date 6136 members are already enrolled from abroad. It is most likely that more than 7 thousand foreigners will participate to this great event. In total, already 12,148 are currently enrolled.
