About Mezza Maratona Roma-Ostia

The Roma-Ostia Half Marathon (Italian: Roma Ostia Mezza Maratona or Maratonina Roma-Ostia) is an annual half marathon road running event which takes place in late February in Rome, Italy. The course begins in the EUR district of the city and follows a direct south-easterly route to the finish point near the beaches of Ostia.It is Italy’s most popular half marathon, with a record 12,000 entries and 9,485 finishers in 2011. The course has a point-to-point format and as a result it some editions have had an overall downhill drop, as well as athlete-assisting tailwinds. Due to these factors, some performances have been ineligible for personal bests or records.
