  • The 24,4km Road Race.: This very scenic route sets off from the port, makes its way through the village, and continues next to the sea as far as the coastal settlement of Ayios Yeorgios (Ai Yiorgis), which offers a stunning view of the islet of Despotiko. Ayios Yeorgios also marks the turning-point; the return follows the same route, but in the opposite direction (the entire distance is on paved road). A timed checkpoint is  located at Ayios Yeorgios as well. Click here for a detailed look at the 24.4k route and the variations in elevation along the route.
  • The 10km Road Race.: This picturesque route starts off at the port, goes through the village, and continues along the seaside road as far as the area of Glyfa, where it makes a U-turn and follows the same route back.
  • The 5km Road Race.: This pretty route begins at the port, winds through the village, and keeps going along the coastal road as far as the area of Panayia, where it turns around and heads back the way it came.
  • The 10km Hike.: This beautiful route departs from the port, and circles around the village. Participants should have with them a backpack, suitable footwear, a hat and water. This hike is not of a competitive nature; it is simply an ideal choice for those who love walking and hiking.
  • The 2km Fun Race for Kids: The starting point for this event is the same as for all of the other events –  i.e. the port area.

  • Pre-Event Arrival Time: All participants who have already picked up their race kits are kindly requested to make their way to the starting area at least 30 minutes prior to the start of the race.
