Called the Corsa dei Santi for the date on which it takes place, and that is November 1st, the Feast of All Saints, it is a sporting event that has grown progressively to reach thousands of participants, keeping faith with its multiple institutional purposes:
- give visibility as a traditional festival to the celebration of All Saints from which it takes its name;
- to bring to the fore a humanitarian emergency that asks for our solidarity;
- promote the values of sport according to the Salesian educational tradition.
Its route, which winds through the historic center of Rome, between squares, churches, and noble palaces, and the presence of athletes competing together with entire families in celebration makes it one of the most beautiful races in the world.
Professional and non-professional athletes, champions and beginners are invited to the competition, boasting prestigious or regular performances, whether or not they are present in national and international rankings. In each edition, however, there are many athletes of absolute global value at the start.
Among the testimonials combined with the charity project of the last editions of the Corsa dei Santi, we mention the Paralympic athlete Giusy Versace, the multi-awarded American athlete Carl Lewis, the American singer Dee Dee Bridgewater, the Franco-Indonesian singer-songwriter Anggun, the fencer Valentina Vezzali, the singer-actor entrepreneur Al Bano and specialist long jump and triple jump athlete Fiona May.
