Rome, 10th December 2019 – Joma returns as the Technical Partner of the RomaOstia Half Marathon 2020 scheduled for Sunday 8th March. The new official t-shirt is ready.
The Huawei RomaOstia 2020 t-shirt. The official 2020 t-shirt is top of the range due to a series of technical features, designed for competitions such as the RomaOstia Half Marathon. An innovative t-shirt created with MESH polyester that gives the fabric excellent breathability and a greater ability to keep the body constantly fresh and dry, while guaranteeing lightness, making it comfortable and soft to the touch. Other elements have also been added such as the round collar, the raglan cut of the sleeve and the slim fitting, all of these details are designed for a better fit, higher performance and greater comfort.
This new model model created by Joma Sport was designed in close collaboration with the Organizers of the same half marathon (GSBRun – Gruppo Sportivo Bancari Romani and RCS Sports & Events). It is also new from the graphic point of view compared to the last editions of RomaOstia and inspired by the creativity of the event.
The numbers. With less than three months to go, the 46th Huawei Roma Ostia Half Marathon has already registered 5,000 race bibs, a positive figure that suggests the 10,200 entries will be exceeded for a competition expected by many enthusiasts that boasts the highest participation of Italian athletes. Organized since 1974 by GSBRun – Gruppo Bancari Romani, in partnership in the last three years with RCS Sports & Events, Huawei Roma Ostia Half Marathon has been awarded by the International Athletics Federation with the Gold label, reserved only for the best road racing events in the world. The only event in Italy to have this recognition.
The renewed and faster path. As announced, in the next edition the route will be changed and made even faster than previous races. The athletes will cover a stretch longer than around 1.5 km inside the EUR district, immediately after the start, while the final along the Ostia seafront will be eliminated, the only change of direction in the race, to avoid athletes being disturbed by the wind coming from the sea. The arrival will be at the end of Via Cristoforo Colombo, on the straight that ends at the roundabout in Ostia. (Full details at the link: www.romaostia.it/la-gara/percorso/).
