Maratona di Roma (Rome Marathon) – 10th April 2016

Trek and Run were supported during this event by; Salba Chia  & Helly Hansen Photos by Laura Kimberley and Studio5 Part 1: By Dave Sherman Before we get started with our reviews, here’s a video I filmed of the event to give you an idea of the course and atmosphere… A journalist in Runners World recently described Rome as a ‘second tier’ Marathon which I found incredibly strange… Sure, Rome doesn’t have as big a field as London (around 12,000 last year compared to 38,000 in London and almost 50,000 in New…

The Rome Marathon, Italy

The Rome Marathon was held on Sunday 18th March, 2012 First of all, here’s a film of the event, it’ll give you an idea of what to expect from the route.

I’ll speak about the actual marathon running…
