Quarry Area - Photo courtesy of wmrc2014 website

This year’s World Mountain Running Championships will be very unique in that the race will go through a marble quarry in Casetta di Massa.  The area was first settled in the second century AD.

Massa is a town in the Tuscan region of Italy, in the Massa and Carrara Province.  Here is the wikipedia entry about Massa.  You can also learn more about Casetta di Massa at the WMRC 2014 Website.

We have set up a basic map of the race location and approximate location of where the team will be staying below:
