Roma Appia Run Sunday 16, the XXIV edition is sold out

“The Roma Appia Run is sold out across the board: once the bibs are sold out for the famous race which on Sunday 16 April, starting at 9 am from via delle Terme di Caracalla and arriving at the Nando Martellini stadium, will wind along the most modern street of the ‘ancient Rome; registrations for the Fulmine dell’Appia, a competition dedicated to children that will animate the Nando Martellini Stadium in Caracalla on Saturday 15 April, from 10.00 until late afternoon, have already closed for weeks”. The organization made it known in a note, underlining the “unprecedented triumph for a race that has reached its 24th edition and has become a point of reference for runners from all over the world”.

“The road running event, competitive over the distance of 13 km and non-competitive over 5 and 13 km, is organized by Acsi with the collaboration of Acsi Italia Atletica and Acsi Campidoglio Palatino, with the sponsorship of Sport e Salute, Coni, Fidal, Rome Capital, Lazio Region, Appia Antica Regional Park and Appia Antica Archaeological Park.The event included in the calendar of the Italian Athletics Federation includes prestigious names in its rich roll of honor: from Giacomo Leone, winner of the New York Marathon and fifth place at the Sydney Olympics, to Maria Guida, European Marathon champion, passing through Veronica Inglese, European half marathon vice-champion conquered in Amsterdam in 2016”.

“The Roma Appia Run is also the only race in the world to take place on as many as 5 different surfaces. A record that no one can aspire to, also because not all places on the planet can offer the opportunity to run on asphalt, cobblestones, paving stones lava, the dirt road of the Caffarella Park and finally the track of the Terme di Caracalla stadium. All in a single race”.

“An event, four races, each aimed at a specific target: the competitive 13km, for athletes ready to try their hand at achieving a great time and improving on the previous year’s performance; the non-competitive 13km, for ambitious enthusiasts but not so attentive to timing and therefore more inclined to a day of outdoor sports; the 5 km, on a shorter route for those who just want an unforgettable walk in the heart of Rome’s history; and finally, the Fulmine dell’Appia, scheduled for Saturday 15 April and dedicated to the little ones”.

“At the starting line of the prestigious Capitoline race there will be Iliass AouanI, the Italian new record holder on the 42.7 km marathon after his sensational performance in the Barcelona Marathon last March 19. The Italian athlete (already boasts two appearances in the ) will compete for the first time in the Roma Appia Run but is a candidate as the number one favorite for the final victory. Aouani will run with bib number 1. First of all, Nekagenet Crippa will compete for success, the first Italian (sixth overall) at the recent Marathon of Rome and older brother of Yemen; Amaniel Freedom, second in last year’s edition; Cherkaoui El Makrout, 2nd in the 2013 edition; Mohammed El Mounim, first at the finish line in 2016; Aziz Laktri, triumphant in 2018. Among the women, open fight between Elisa Palmero, from the Army, Sveva Fascetti, from the Fiamme Gialle, and Sara Carnicelli, second in 2022”.
