Bastia Umbra, Italy
Distance: Half Marathon
In December 1978, members of the Aspa team put their ideals for the first time in the street (a healthy practice and dissemination of amateur racing activities with countless benefits on psycho-physical health) by organizing a racing on the road called INVERNALISSIMA a challenge to the cold and the mistrust with which amateur sport was seen in those years. It was still in the beginning, in Umbria, as in the rest of Italy, until then the sport thought and seen was that of television and full stadiums, professional athletes who were only to win the victory.
Many, from outside, saw the uselessness of what those people did, even when they were old and often lacking particular athletic skills, ran all those miles so as not to win anything. And only those who attended could know the usefulness: the joy of being there, and the feeling of being alive regardless of the position in the standings.This is the story, but the present of Aspa speaks the same language: only numbers change, constantly grown.

The start and the finishl of the competition will take place at Bastia Umbra at the Umbriafiere Trade Fair Center. The route is flat except for slopes due to bridges or small slopes, however, which will not affect the expectations of any athlete in trying to improve his personal performance on the distance of 21,097 km.On the track, in addition to the presence of the numerous audience, there will be some musical styles which, while passing, will entice the participants trying to "warm up the atmosphere" by relieving, hopefully, the feeling of fatigue and cold.There will be three refreshment points with hot tea, water, fruit and mineral salts, as well as the ultimate refreshment.During the course of the race, two rescue centers will be present and the entire route will be closed to vehicular traffic.
