10K and 5K We Run Rome Rules
December 31st, 2023 - 12th Edition
On Sunday 31 December 2023, Atleticom ASD will organise the 12th edition of the We Run Rome, a non -competitive and competitive running event over the distances of 10 and 5km. The event is being held under the aegis of FIDAL and it is also included in the national calendar and awarded with the FIDAL Silver Label.
It benefits from the patronage of the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI), the City of Rome and the Lazio Region.
By registering to the race, the athlete declares that he has read and she/he fully accepts these regulations
The competition regulations may be subject to change following the dispositions given by the competent institutions; we therefore invite all participants to consult them and keep up to date.
Any changes will be duly communicated to registered athletes via the event website www.werunrome.com or via the official Facebook page.
1 – Meeting point
The meeting point is set for Sunday 31 December 2023 at 10:00 a.m. at the Terme di Caracalla Stadium 'Nando Martellini' in Rome. The start of the competitive and non-competitive 10 km race will be given in Via delle Terme di Caracalla at 14:00. The 5 km non-competitive race will start a few minutes later.
2 - Participation Requirements 10 and 5Km Non-Competitive
The recreational-motor event includes two non-competitive events over distances of 10 km and 5 km respectively.
For the 10 km race, all those who will have reached their 14th birthday by 31 December 2023 may register. For the 5 km non-competitive race there are no age limits; children up to the age of 13 must be accompanied by a parent/legal guardian.
Registration for the event implies the tacit declaration of self-certification of physical fitness for the practice of "non-competitive" sporting activity in accordance with the relevant regulations in force and therefore exempts the organisers from requesting such a medical certificate. The participant relieves the Organising Committee and its partners of all responsibility regarding his or her physical fitness to take part in the event and of all liability, both civil and criminal, for damage to persons and/or property caused by him or her or resulting from his or her participation in the race. He also declares that he grants his/her authorisation to use any of his photographs relating to his/her participation in the event for any legitimate use without remuneration.
For the 10 km non-competitive race there will be no ranking: athletes may wear the chip for timekeeping but will be listed in alphabetical order.
For the 5 km non-competitive race there is no time-keeping.
