For the Ghibelline Ronda 2014 is that qualitative leap, the growth that has long sought the organizers. And given the results seems to have hit the target. “La Ronda – they said in unison Renato Menci and Remo Castellani – is part of the Grand Prix JUTE Ultratrail 2014.” But that’s not all. “It will, in fact, assigned – they continue – a point for the UTMB 20, qualifying for the 2014. The Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc, which takes place on the three slopes of Mont Blanc, one French, one Italian and one Swiss. “In this important new addition the real cherry on the cake. For the first time the Italian national team will be present in Castiglion Fiorentino. For the blue team, twenty athletes, this is the first meeting of the year but for the country and above all for the event is a big recognition that the Italian Athletics Federation has given to the Association Ronda Ghibelline. It’s only been three editions of the event before daring but the hard work, the passion with which it was built the event is gaining converts all over Italy and beyond. “We thank everyone who every year help us to organize this exciting adventure – have argued – starting, of course, the Running ASD Ronda Gibellina, Castiglionesi Organized by the Group Walkers, volunteers VAB and this year the Historical Group and flag-waving of Castiglion Fiorentino”. An army of volunteers who work indefatigably all year to make the sporting event. The days of the Merla, traditionally considered to be the coldest winter, this year will be for the country of the Tower of the Fortress among the hottest and warm. Is already talk of 800 arrivals, including runners. About 300 more than last year. For a weekend, then, the country will become the navel of the world’s Trial. Everyone will enjoy a unique and inspiring. Starting from the name of the event. Ghibellina, because Castiglion Fiorentino between the 12th and the 14th century in the struggle for supremacy between the papacy and the emperor had brightened with the latter becoming, among other things, one of the most Ghibelline in Italy. Ronda, because the circuit along the ridge all the beautiful Valle di Chio. And then the enhancement of food and wine of the region. “It ‘s always been our goal – added – to promote the territory and its resources through the tourist-gastronomic event”. At the Sports Palace, the heart of Ronda, will be set up booths of local producers. “We will try to give a strong impression – they said – to leave a lasting impression on all participants in the race.” That’s, like last year, the athletes will be honored with mugs depicting the symbol of Ronda Ghibellina. Both the statues that the trophies of Ronda were made by the artist castiglionese Andrea Roggi  as well as a sculpture made by my colleague, always Castiglione, Giuseppe Dorgioni. There are three distances over which athletes will compete. The RONDA ASSASSINA the first, shorter, a little more than 13 kilometers. The second distance, RONDA VALLIGIANA, about 27 miles, will be half on the ridges north of the Val di Chio and the rest of the path of the hillside, touching all the small villages and ancient ruins foothill of the right side valligiano.
