14,608 people finished the Rome Marathon on Sunday which is a record for an previous Italian race.
“In windy and rainy conditions, Ethiopia’s 27-year-old Legese Shume Hailu won the men’s race in 2:09:47. After a very fast start, Geda Ayelu Lemma dominated the women’s competition. Although she got tired in the end, she passed the finish line in first place with a time of 2:34:49.”
I also ran (my 21st marathon) and finished less than 4 hours after Geda ;o)
