Results and statistics at the 18th edition of Rome Marathon 2012

It was supposed to be a good day to break the 2009 Rome Marathon record, which was achieved by Benjamin Kiptoo in 2h07'17. But wind in the final part of the marathon did not allow the Kenian Luka Kanda to complete it below 2h08 (2h08'04' was the final timing). Kanda was followed by compatriot Samson Barmao (2:08:52) and Ethiopian Abebe Demssew Tsega (2:10:47). The first Italian was Carmine Buccilli with a time of 2:25:03. For women, as predicted, the favorite Hellen Kimutai won, with a finish time of 2:31:09. After the Kenyan, Ethiopian Bekele Ashete (2:31:22) and Russia's Marina Kovalyova (2:31:51). It was a very good edition with 80'000 participants on all events, and 12'685 finishers (+0.3% against last year) completing the marathon (12'614 runners arrived at the finish line in 2011). This represents a compounded growth average rate of 1.3% over the last 5 years. 

Ironically, the route was changed this year, to eliminate few windy avenues. After passing along the Tiber, the  marathoners reached the Parioli hill and Piazza del Popolo and finally jump to the finish banner in Via dei Fori Imperiali. The new 8.5 km route passes through the Olympic Village, Acqua Acetosa, Auditorium Music Park Avenue, before heading for Julius Caesar avenue and Via Cola di Rienzo.
