Polisportiva Marsala Doc was also present at the last edition of the Rome Marathon, the special edition, that of the post Covid rebirth. To represent the blue and white colors were Michele D’Errico and Antonio Pizzo. And once again the exceptional performance provided by D’Errico, who with a time of 3 hours, 27 minutes and 26 seconds was 407th overall, out of over 7 thousand registered participants from every corner of the world, but above all first in his category (SM65) on a fierce batch of 119 of the same age group. “It was a unique and exciting success” comments the standard bearer (as well as vice president) of the Polisportiva Marsala Doc. Antonio Pizzo’s performance (3:46:44) was also worthy, 30th in his age category and 1011th overall .
Once again, the capital marathon put all the participants to the test. And this for the approximately 8 kilometers of cobblestones and some hard climbs in the second part of the race, when fatigue also begins to set in. But to compensate for the effort, almost to make it forget, is the splendid, certainly unique, scenario in which you run. To distract the athletes is the ancient charm of the Imperial Forums (departure and arrival), the Colosseum, the Altare della Patria, the Circus Maximus, St. Peter’s square, the area of the Olympic stadium, Piazza Navona, via del Corso, Piazza del Popolo and Trinità dei Monti. Cultural-historical-architectural attractions that no other city in the world can seeantare. Meanwhile, another important appointment is already around the corner for the company of president Filippo Struppa. Next Sunday, in fact, the Cefalù half marathon is scheduled for the first round of the 2021 regional Fidal Grand Prix.
