HistoryEdit

The 2009 edition of the race, initially set for November 2009, was shifted to April the following year.[1] The newly scheduled event featured a marathon, half marathon, and relay marathon event. The move proved popular and at least 7213 runners took part in the activities that year.[2] At the 2011 edition, the marathon and relay events saw more than five thousand participants each, making a record total of 10,203 runners.[3]

Barclays Bank became the title sponsor in 2012 and 13569 people participated in the day's events, including the marathon and relay races.[4]

The 2020 edition of the race was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown of Italy.[5]
