The Millet Volcano Trail is a timed individual stage race, open to men and women aged 18 and over. The whole distance covered is 80 km, with a vertical gain of over 6000 m. The trail is split into 5 timed stages. The stages are generally on beaten tracks and there aren’t any especially dangerous or weather beaten stretches. There will be some easy snowy sections on Etna equipped with fixed ropes by the Italian Mountain rescue services, in case there is the need for them. The number of entrants is limited to 50 plus 20 companions.
Etna Marathon - Trail
The Catania based AITNE MED association with the support of Millet and Valetudo Skyrunning Italia, are organizing on Sunday 1st November 2015, the tenth edition of the Etna Valetudo Eco Marathon, in collaboration with the Parco dell’Etna, the Regional forestry commission, the Italian mountain rescue services and the Guardia della Finanza. The aim of the competition is to build, through sport, awareness of the Parco dell’ Etna’s territory: the plan of the course has been deliberately studied to cross the most evocative areas of the highest active volcano in Europe.
