ORGANIZING COMMITTE NOTE ABOUT ANNULMENT 2017 MMT100MILE EDITION
With a short note the Organizing Committee announced that the MMT100MILE, the demanding race Trail for five years took place in the lands of the Magredi, the 100 miles that has seen at the start hundreds of athletes from all around the world will unfortunately be canceled.
The cancellation, dictated by technical and organizational reasons, does not want to be a goodbye but a goodbye to a year when the staff, comprising everything from volunteers, will be able to find the energy and resources necessary to repeat with even greater successfully a new edition of the event.
“This exciting race was born from a bet launched a few years ago by a group of friends” – says Michela Benedetti, President of ASD MAGREDI MOUNTAIN TRAIL – “In order to ensure that the participants have a unique experience in our beautiful area, relying on the highest levels of security and efficiency, the MMT Team has imposed strict organizational rules by examining and testing the standards of the most famous long-distance races in the world, and trying to not only match them but to exceed them. I think for example that the MMT100MILE is one of the few races, not in Italy but in the World, which can count on a real security plan that has been designed, drafted and ratified by experts. This allowed us to give great importance to this specialty in the region, and at the same time enhancing the Friuli area, not only within the national borders, but especially on the wider international scene, involving many foreign athletes. For us to cancel the tender amounts to a hard and painful renunciation, which has, however, it becomes necessary and inevitable, because for us on the first floor there are always the athlete and his safety. In races of any distance, so even more so in a hundred miles of this complexity, not just the path, but each organization component must be kept well under control, no detail can be left to chance. I am sure that athletes understand and will support our decision, granting us this sabbatical year, which will allow us to recreate our group at best, but above all stronger and determined than before. ”
If the official race will take a break, the group will continue to work actively and, waiting the next edition, it will be offered to those who wish to test and improve the team the path of 100 miles, participation in the self-managed Trail distance of 40-50 km.
