Admirate a view like you can see in the picture. Image yourselves while run along the path which looks just like this place. Add the fascinating charm that only the Elba island can offer in autumn. Combine all of these elements and you can have the 2017 edition of Sky trail Chiessi-Pomonte which will be held on October 8th.
From Chiessi to Pomonte: it’s a non competitive mountain race which held along the paths around Monte Capanne and surroundings valleys. These are the most beautiful points the runners will reach: Le Cotete, il Capo, monte San Bartolomeo, Monte Orlando, Monte Schiappone.

How to get
Both Chiessi and Pomonte are two hamlets of the town of Marciana. To arrive from Portoferraio (one of the main ports where it’s possible take the ferries to the Elba island) to Marciana, you have to:
- Take the provincial road 24 to Procchio;
- From Procchio, take the provincial road 25 to Marciana.
You will have to drive less than an hour.
And about panoramas…
…in Procchio begins the Western ring of the Elba island. It’s the coastal road from Procchio to Marina di Campo. The hamlets of Chiessi and Pomonte are located right along the Western Ring. After the race, you could take advantage of it to find places such as the Paolina Island and the Fetovaia Gulf.
