If you go on foot, you can enjoy the center of Rome mostly without traffic until the early afternoon. Various roads require you to wait a bit when a group of runners come through.
The metro runs normally, but bus routes in the center are interrupted or being diverted. To get to the start of the marathon, get off at Metro B station Cavour.
Motorists should expect closures from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The area near Piazza Venezia will be closed the night before. You will need more time to get to the airport from the city center.
