What is the 2VS?

The Two Volcano Sprint is a single-stage, self-supported bicycle challenge starting and finishing at south Italy’s two iconic volcanoes, Mt. Vesuvio and Mt. Etna. The route crosses through National Parks, rural mountain villages, Calabrese forests, the panoramic Amalfi and Cilento coastline and the Appenine mountain range.

When

The 2VS 2024 start is at 5:00am on Sunday, October 13th at the foot of Mt. Vesuvio.

The finisher party takes place on the evening of Friday, October 18 in Nicolosi.

The Rules

As with all self-supported adventure races, riders must cycle the fixed GPX route completely self-powered and unassisted, carrying their own gear and acquiring any food, water, resources or lodgings at commercially available services. Riders must carry a GPS tracker, that should be turned on at all times. Drafting is not permitted unless riding in a pair. There is no prize money or reward for participants except the satisfaction of having pushed their legs and limits, explored another part of this planet and contributed towards improving the lives of people living on it.

The Goal

The Two Volcano Sprint is a not-for-profit event promoting eco-sustainability in south Italy. Thanks to sponsors covering organizational costs, 100% of the riders’ entry fees, after tracker rental, go towards an annual sponsorship grant. Every year, the 2VS association offers this grant to a project, initiative or service that positively impacts nature preservation, environmental sustainability, or climate action, while boosting economic growth for local communities

## Annual sponsorship award project

*The Davida Association*is a non-profit company that started a collection project purchasing food parcels and supplies distributed throughout the Napoli/Salerno region during the Covid-19 lockdowns. The Two Volcano Sprint was created to reinforce this not-for-profit organisation, using participants’ registration fees to fund an annual project focused on eco-sustainability and education in southern Italy.
