W. Ch. 2014 at Casette of Massa: a world adventure between mountains and marble. - 10 September 2014 Print

It’s just a few days to go to the World Mountain Running Championships on 14th September in Casette di Massa in the Italian region of Tuscany on the amazing backdrop of the Apuan Alps.
The 30th edition of these Championships will be staged on a “only-up” course which will go through a cave of the famous “Bacino di Gioia” in the final section of the course.

Here the marble, which gave shape to many masterpieces of Italian art, is extracted.
The World Championships will feature almost 400 athletes from 40 countries from the five Continents.
It’s the eighth time that this event is held in Italy, which boasts a long tradition in this discipline.
On Saturday 13th September the Opening Ceremony of the 2014 World Mountain Championships will be highlighted by the delivery of a block of marble, from which Italian artist Fabio Viale will carve the statue dedicated to Pietro Mennea which will be located at the Stadio dei Marmi in Rome which is already named after the former 200 metres Olympic champion and World record holder.

Andrea Mayr from Austria and Petro Mamo as shining winners with new course records! - 01 September 2014 Print
2014leogangmayr.jpg14 days before the 30th Mountain Running Championships in Casette di Massa (ITA), the international top stars of the mountain running came from 19 countries to a final form validation in Saalfelden Leogang.
The conditions were not ideal: Saturday’s rain had made the course especially in the middle part extremely muddy and slippery, but cold foggy weather with no rain was still better than summer hot.
The results are witnessing how strong the competition was: in men’s’ race 27 runners finished the race below 55minutes (in 2013 just 16) and 9 women below one hour (in 2013 only 2).
In the men’s race the World  Cup leading 8 runners were on the start and in women’s race five from top seven!
Both winners improved the course records; Petro Mamo, his own from 2013, for almost one minute and Andrea Mayr, the current European Champion, for almost five minutes!
