A unique Trail Run race with part of it running along the coastline through the especially beautiful and environmentally important ecosystem of Erimitis, a Natura area of unfathomable natural beauty, without however the race losing its mountain character, thanks to the terrain.
The start and finish line of the race will be at the harbour of Kassiopi and, besides the Erimitis region, the route brings to focus all the traditional neighbourhoods and settlements of the region (Moutrouva, Katsafalata, Kremmythas, Tritsi, Agnitsini, Saint Stefanos, Votana) through hidden paths that according to historians they were used by the locals during the period the Ionian Sea was plagued by pirates and the villages moved inland to safer, mountainous areas not visible from the sea. Another part of the race will go through the Kassiopi Castle, an important 12th century monument, testimony to the glorious past of the city.
Eligible to participate are men and women 18 years of age and over.
