Trail Mountain

Etna Sky Marathon takes place in a location which has scenery which is difficult to find elsewhere in the world, on the slopes of a volcano where we can find recent lava flows where no living creatures have yet settled, as well as older lava flows where clusters of larches, beeches and birches are growing. Mt Etna frequently erupts: during the last 30 years, at least one eruption every has been reported every three years. These eruptions have lasted from 5 days to more than a year. The race starts off at Piano Vetore, located near the “Grande Albergo dell’Etna” (Nicolosi – Etna South 1720 mt.) at 8 am. The marathon will then run along the mountain track known as the Pista Altomontana until Piano Provenzana, on the Northern slopes of Etna.
