Rome - Formula Run Cup 10 K
The Race in Rome. On Sunday the Black Knight (#159) and Sir Giorgio (#158 - see his report too) went to Rome to run the Formula Run Cup 10 K through the business district named Eur famous to be planned and built under the fascist period.
The boxeur pays homage to the Black Knight:
While going to take the bib:
The organization was perfect, the volunteers friendly and the loot very good (cakes, yogurth, tea, fruit juice, milk and a tech New Balance t-shirt) but the route very difficult: only uphill and downhill (again!!!!) in narrow streets as you can see in the elevation chart below. Also the finish line was at the top of a uphill. As usual I had to forget my competitive spirit not to injure more my left leg.
Stats. 10 km in 49:46 at the pace of 4'59"/km (8'01"/m); 630 of 1127 overall; 590 of 940 men and 60 of 118 age group.
Question: do you prefer a flat or a hilly race?
