THE MILE OF ROME – 11th March
The mile, the Anglo-Saxon measure of excellence, is inextricably linked to the history of athletics.
Aside from experts, there aren't many people who will remember the name of the first person to run 800m in under 1’45 minutes or who ran the 1500m in under 3’30, but almost everyone remembers that it was the Englishman Roger Bannister who ran the mile in under 4 minutes.
The Mile race has been held many times in the capital of Italy, one of the most memorable being the race organized at Piazza Navona where great champions competed on a circuit which was very similar to a proper track. Among the many protagonists that season was Sydney Maree, the South African athlete with an American passport who was one of the best in the world in the 1500m and 5000m in the ‘80s. For the 2017 edition, the “Miglio di Roma” will take place during the International Careers Festival in order to further emphasize the participation of athletes and young people from all over the world.
The event will be divided into a competitive and non-competitive race which will be open to all those interested, whether they are athletes or not, within the beautiful framework of Via del Corso, from Piazza del Popolo to Piazza Venezia.
