Runners will have a rare opportunity to race on a European Athletics Championships course at Roma 2024, by taking part in the Roma 10K during the championships which take place 7-12 June.

The Roma 10k will take place on Sunday 9 June from 10:15am, starting and finishing at the Fori Imperiali, the same iconic location in the heart of Rome where shortly before, the official half marathon of the Roma 2024 European Athletics Championships will start.

The unique event will bring together runners and amateurs from all over the world to take part in the Roma 10K, a competitive and non-competitive 10km mass race. It’s an opportunity for regular runners to experience a true championship atmosphere in one of the world’s great cities.

Registration for the Roma 10K is open here.

As well as entry for the race, participants will get an official race bib, a technical jersey made by the Official Supplier of the Roma 2024 European Athletics Championships Karhu and a ticket valid to enter the Olympic Stadium during the morning session on Saturday 8 June of the Roma 2024 European Athletics Championships.

The Roma 10K course will partly follow that of the half marathon included in the official programme of the Roma 2024 European Athletics Championships (men’s start 9:00am and women’s start 9:30am), touching some of the most iconic spots of the Eternal City: the Altare della Patria in Piazza Venezia, Castel Sant’Angelo, Piazza del Popolo, Piazza di Spagna and Piazza Navona, before coming back to the Fori Imperiali.

Registration for the competitive Roma 10K is scheduled to close on 3 June, while the deadline for the non-competitive race will be 8 June. 

The first registered athletes will be able to purchase the race pack at the promotional price of 20EUR, and there is also a special deal for sports clubs: for every 10 participating athletes, one will be able to register for free. The complete regulations of the Roma 10K and the rest of the information are available on the website.

Tickets and subscription to follow the Roma 2024 European Athletics Championships, including the 9 June date, are on sale here with prices starting from 5EUR plus pre-sale and service fees.
