Activity description

“Cursa di Ciclopi” (https://cursadiciclopi.com/en/the-race/) is the first edition of a big sport event, a 500km race, involving international runners across Sicily (50 municipalities, 8 villages, 4 regional parks, etc). The event is a unique opportunity to give visibility and promote the revitalisation of internal areas of the region with a clear approach toward the preservation of the environment and the natural resources and the promotion of local economy. Volunteers will support the organisation of the event, and tasks may include: course tracking, support to the logistics; preparation and management of the “Life Bases” where the runners stop for rest (arranging the spaces, cooking, cleaning); support to the Information point; support to the runners (refreshments along the route and in the finish area; delivery of bibs and bags; linguistic mediation); photos and/or videos for promotion. Volunteers shall organise a public moment to raise awareness on healthy life-style.

The activity will be itinerant, in line with the race stages.
