Civitavecchia Half Marathon: the ordeal (13 Nov 2005)



On a sunny sunday the two Black Knights Stefano (left in the picture below) and Giorgio (right) arrived in time and ready to fight on the battlefield of Civitavecchia, where almost 1.300 enemies were waiting for challenging the invincible legion. The battle was terrible, the enemy very cruel and coward but after 1.42.57 of siege the barbarian troops surrended and the glorious Black Knight Army entered through the gate of the port in the now conquered Civitavecchia!!!!

The split of 1.42.57 (4.53/km.) is:
1. 4.40 (flat) - 2. 4.45 (flat) - 3. 4.47 (flat) - 4. 5.01 (short uphill) - 5. 4.34 (flat) - 6. 4.55 (flat) - 7. 4.54 (flat) - 8. 4.53 (flat) - 9. 5.02 (uphill) - 10. 5.09 (uphill) - 11. 5.05 (flat - recovering a bit) - 12. 4.49 (flat - short downhill) - 13. 4.49 (flat) - 14. 4.49 (flat) - 15. 4.42 (flat) - 16. 5.11 (uphill) - 17. 5.01 (short uphill) - 18. 4.52 (flat) - 19. 5.01 (recovering a bit before the final rush) - 20. 4.46 (flat) - 21. 4.46 (flat) - 97 final metres (uphill): o.27
The final score was: 672° on 1122 runners and 115° on 187 in my age group (45-50 y.o.).
Let me know if some friend would like to receive for souvenir (it is free) my race number (1126).

As soon as possible I hope to show the pictures.
