On 23.9.2018, the Rome half-marathon Via Pacis will be held.
Rome Half-marathon Via Pacis “Way of Peace”
This Rome Half-marathon Via Pacis “Way of Peace” is new. It originates from an initiative of the city of Rome and the pontifical council for culture. The aim of the event is to make known the cultural and religious wealth of the city and the integration between different religious communities. In addition to the race on a distance of 21,097 km, a free run is organized on a 5km track. In the sense of the traditional Seven-Church pilgrimage, the course connects the religious sites of different denominations and religious communities, such as the mosque, the synagogue, Christian churches and other religious places. The event is technically and logistically supported by the Italian Athletics Federation FIDAL.
