Castelli Romani Half Marathon
On Sunday we went to the Alban Hills, south east of Rome, for the 12th Castelli Romani Half Marathon. Vincenzo ran a 22 km course that began and ended in the town of Genzano, winding its way through the hill towns of Fontanaccio, Ariccia, Villimi, Albano, Castel Gondolfo and Le Piagge.
We arrived early so that Vincenzo could warm up in the streets of Genzano.
Here are the runners leaving the starting gate.

with just a few hundred meters to go.
A happy runner with medal and flowers at the finish line!
