I’ m a first-time runner can I still take part?
Absolutely. This is a community race, you are running with others, for others. If you need to walk then walk, take in the sights and enjoy the atmosphere, this is about enjoying the race, not becoming a champion. There are two distances to choose from (1, 5 km, 10 km ) so you can choose the race that best suits you. When you take on the challenge, forget about your split times and revel in that finishing line feeling, however long it takes.
What if I’m unable to finish the race?
We will give each participant a total of 2 hours to complete the course. At this time we will collect any runners who are still out on the course and bring them to the finishing line with plenty of water, snacks, and hugs. If at any point you wish to stop, just make it to the next aid station to inform one of our volunteers or, if you want to stop right there, let a fellow runner know to inform him instead. There will be staff observing the course to ensure everyone is alright.
What will the weather be like during the race week?
The first days of July are almost the heart of the summer in Greece so rain or temperature below 20C would be a big surprise for everyone. In the daytime temperatures are generally in the low 28s, the maximum is usually around 32-35 C. At night it can get down to 24C.
Will there be medical support?
Yes, we will have qualified staff for this reason.
Are there water stations along the way?
Water stations will be roughly every 2.5 km. They will be stocked with water and bananas. If you have particular energy bars and drinks that you love then bring them along with you. We advise runners to wear a hat and carry water and energy snacks with them – it’s a course with little shade after all.
Is there a discount for underage students?
There is no discount for underage students as every service you book at the starter price is at its lowest possible price booked for you.
