Saturday 14 giugnoi 2017 appointment with the eighth SuperMaratona Etna, a sporting event of international significance : it is the foot race on one track with the highest altitude in the world.
Out on the beach of Marina di Cottone ( 0 meters above sea level) , in the municipality of Fiumefreddo . From here the trail starts to get to the top of Mount Etna , the highest active volcano in Europe. Three thousand meters of altitude , coated on a path slightly higher than that of the 42.195 km .
The particularity of this type of event, in addition to the difference concerns the context in which it develops and that is one of the most famous and fascinating : the Etna volcano.
The SuperMaratona Etna - zero to three thousand is on a path almost constantly uphill. Along the 43 km of the route athletes will face several difficulties . Several are the tears , though often only a few hundred meters in length, which , however, put to the test the legs of one who engages in this very special road race .
The most complicated is definitely up to the 33rd kilometer when, Piano Provenzano ( altitude 1800 m ) , the athletes will have to leave the paved road to begin to climb on the back of Etna.

Sicily is the largest Italian Island, separated from the continent by the Strait of Messina and lapped by the Ionian, the Tyrrhenian and the Mediterranean Seas.
It is one of the pearls of Southern Italy and can be discovered, understood and experienced through a series of itineraries dedicated to all tastes ranging from nature to history and tradition.
Nature seems to have endowed all of its wonders to this land: mountains, hills and above all the Mediterranean Sea, with its incredible colours, its crystal-clear water and the beauty of its seabeds, in no way inferior to those of other seas.
Here, the Mediterranean Sea, with its many little islands scattered around the coasts of Sicily, offers unique and intense sceneries, scents and flavours of an uncontaminated nature. Last but not least, are the great volcanoes, symbols of the irresistible exuberance of this incredibly charming region. The fascination of this region grows with the precious archeological vestiges that tell the story of the ancient origins of Trinacria (ancient name for Sicily).
The provinces of the region are: Palermo (regional capital), Agrigento, Catania, Caltanissetta, Enna, Messina, Ragusa, Siracusa and Trapani.
