What's the date of the relay race and the starting meeting?

Run4Rome will be on Sunday 19 September 2021, with starting point in Via dei Fori Imperiali at 7:30 AM. Meeting point in Via Cavour, from 5.00 am. The mask will be worn up to the first 500 meters.

The start for the first section

From 5:00 AM, it will be possible to access the starting sector. Unlike a marathon, where athletes are divided into several starting sectors according to their “credit time”, for Run4Rome there will be one starting sector. Anyone wishing to leave from the front must therefore be near the entrance gate to the “start corridor” at the time indicated above. The start of Run4Rome will be at about 7:30 AM. The mask will be worn up to the first 500 meters.


The start of the following sections

The relay runners of the 2nd, 3rd, 4th leg will have to position themselves inside each waiting area in the respective leg start area (as shown above in the summary), defined as “transition area” on the course, which will be highlighted by positioning signs that will divide this waiting area into groups of teams race numbers:


  1-200       201–400       401-600       601-800        801-1000        1001-1200


Therefore each relay runner must wait for his partner to exchange the leg in correspondence with each of these areas. When he sees his partner arriving with his own team race number, he will have to approach the inflatable arch and wait for his partner to arrive and then start his leg.

The precise point of the leg exchange will be at the inflatable arch under which the timing check will be positioned. NO object (“NO baton”)must have changed hands and there must NOT be any physical contact between the relay runners: the leg exchange beetwen the team runners will be carried out at a close safety distance and this will be verified by judges and official assistants who will give you all the support.

Pay attention to each “transition area”: the individual marathon will pass by in a parallel lane. There will be signs that will direct you into the lane towards the transition area. Therefore, carefully read the signs prepared along the route and the indications of the official assistants.

The mask also for the relay runners of the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th leg will be worn up to the first 500 meters from the start of each leg. Immediately after the finish line of each leg they will find it in the refreshment pack.


ARRIVO 4° FRAZIONISTA Il 4° frazionista terminerà la sua prova in Via dei Fori Imperiali nella corsia di destra rispetto alla maratona individuale (corsia segnalata da cartelli appositi e dagli addetti ufficiali).

Una volta tagliato il traguardo riceverà la mascherina, la medaglia, infine nella zona ristoro riceverà  il pacco ristoro con acqua, sali minerali e solidi. Il servizio sanitario, i WC, il servizio di deposito borse.


In tutti gli arrivi di ciascuna frazione sarà obbligatorio indossare la mascherina fino all’uscita dalla zona post-arrivo.

Refreshments and Sponges

In accordance with the regulations, refreshment points are provided at the finish line and along the route, no more than 5 kilometres apart. At the refreshment points, water, supplements, fruit and biscuits will be present.

In accordance with the regulations, there are also sponge points along the route, no more than 5 kilometres apart. Sponges will be available to the athletes at all sponge points.


The measurement of the times and the processing of the rankings will be carried out by means of a system based on an electronic transponder (“chip”), which will be delivered with instructions upon collection of the bib. Athletes and/or teams that in any way detach and/or damage the “chip” cannot be timed and will not appear in the rankings.

The team race number of your leg must be worn only by you and clearly visible on the front. Do not fold the bib and apply the pins correctly so as not to damage the timing chip (bibtag) applied on the back side. This chip is disposable and will NOT be returned at the end of the race.

You will also need to fix the second print of team race number on your back too. The timing check of each leg will be highlighted by an inflatable arch which will also be the exact one of each exchange point. The service is provided by Sdam srl timing and data processing service.

For each team, the following will be recorded: the official time (from the relay shot to the finish line), the net time (from the moment the start line is crossed until the finish line), and the intermediate passes at the end of each section.

Medical service

An adequate medical assistance service will be guaranteed on the route, with fixed stations and vehicles following the race. There will be one station at the end of each section.

After the relay

At the finish line each participant will be given a mask which must be worn until exiting the delimited post-arrival area.After the final finish, the relay racers will be channelled into special corridors to receive participation medals for all team members, for access to the final refreshments and other post-arrival services (bag retrieval, etc).
