To collect your race pack you must present the registration receipt that was sent to you by email. Athletes registered in the competitive race who have a valid RunCard must present a valid medical certificate for competitive sports as well as the aforementioned receipt.
You can delegate another person to pick up your race pack. The person must have a printed copy of the e-mail confirming registration and a photocopy of the participant’s ID card or passport signed by the participant.

10. When I registered, I selected the wrong shirt size, how can I change it?
11. What is the fit of the shirt like? Is there a difference between the cut of the men's and women’s shirts?
The shirts are a “regular fit”, so not very tight. We are running on December 31, so we suggest you choose a size that is not too tight which allows you to wear a top under your We Run Rome top.
The cut of the shirts is different for men and women: the women’s top is more fitted and next-to-skin.
12. Where can I change? Will there be showers available?
Yes, you will be able to change in the two changing areas, one for men and one for women.
There will not be any showering facilities on site.
13. Will there be a place to leave a bag with my personal effects?
Yes, there will be a special area where you can leave your personal effects on race day. But we recommend you do not bring valuables with you.

There will be two aid stations, one at the 5 km point and the other at the end of the race.

The metro station “Circo Massimo” (Metro B, blue line) is only 150 metres from the Caracalla Stadium.
16. What type of chip will be used?
The chips used for the timing system are disposable ones, they are applied directly to the back of the runner’s number and do not have to be returned after the race.
17. Will the competitive race be the only event timed?
No, the timing system will be used for the competitive and non-competitive 10K events. The only difference is that an official classification will be drawn up with the Real Times of the athletes in the competitive race and the runners in the non-competitive race will be just out to run against the clock.
