We'll step outside from the touristic area to climb the highest hill in Rome and get one of the best views of Rome at 140 meters height This is not a walking tour. The default route are 12km/8mi running or jogging We'll skip all the main touristic monuments and visit places one actually wouldn't go when coming to Rome for the first time From Piazza Venezia, our meeting point, it will take us about an hour to reach the top of Monte Mario hill from where we are going to see the sunrise approx. at 7:30 during the month of December After crossing the Tiber river on Ponte Milvio bridge we'll enter in the Stadio dei Marmi to run a lap on the athletics track At the 8th km we get at the bottom of the hill, the trail to the top has an uneven terrain made out of rocks and that's what makes it more challenging. We can rest at half way or run no-stop until the top and try to get there in less than 59 minutes At the top of Monte Mario hill we'll have an sport drink bottle and wait for or take a look at the sunrise After we come down we'll go to a bakery, it's a tiny place, everything is really tasty and you could buy a salty or sweet bite This is the end, you could take the metro at the Ottaviano stop or we can keep running to the starting point
Click on my photo to view my profile, there you will find my other running experience. It’s a long distance run of 32km to the countryside of Rome. I started meeting runners on Airbnb in January 2019 with 3 ideas in mind. - keep me motivated to run early in the morning - keep a low price (probably the lowest) to share the joy of running - bring runners outside from the touristic area to one of the best viewpoint of Rome. My first half marathon was in Milan (November 2017), and I have done 3 marathons, one in Rome (April 2018) an other one in Venice (October 2018) and the 3rd marathon was in Athens (November 2019) take a look at the races I've done @feliperuns.
one sport drink bottle of 500ml
Piazza Venezia, Via del Corso, Via Flamiania, Ponte Milvio (5km), Stadio dei Marmi and the top of Monte Mario hill (10km) The default route are 12km and about 1h30m ending at the Ottaviano metro station. To run back to the starting point it's a total of 15km and about 2 hours. If you would like to keep running, there is the opportunity to run around the Vatican hill (3.5km) and climb the Gianicolo hill, running up the 3 hills will be almost 22km.
最多可有4位年满18周岁的参与者参加。 This is not a walking tour, it's a physical activity that will make you sweat. We will run a minimum distance of 12km or 8mi. Let's do this!! Where there's a will there's a way!!
It might be a difficult run to some people, It's not about the pace, we'll run all together. It's about determination to run until the top of the hill. If you haven't run a half marathon join and push your limits!! Everyone can do this!! It just feels good!! and the climb is always worth the view.
