Andros Trail Race 2019


We are already counting backwards for the most exciting trail race in Cyclades, the Andros Trail Race on the 28th and 29th September in Andros island.

This race, after four years, has gained the respect and acknowledgement of athletes from Greece and the whole world. It has become an institution and athletes and volunteers choose to relive the moment again and again.
Young and older athletes of all potential choose their route in Andros Trail Race. Four routes of rare beauty in the island nature, combining the Cycladic aura and the wild beauty of mountainous Greece, are ready to host once again the participants.

In Andros Trail Race sports are combined with culture, as it takes place in the only island in Europe to be certified with “Leading Quality Trails - Best of Europe” from the European Ramblers Association. At the same time the routes go through historical monuments and sceneries of natural beauty like the Venetian castle of Faneromeni, the castle-like monastery of Panachrandou, the dovecotes in Korthi, the watermills in Dipotamata gorge.

A race that challenges, excites, reveals and combines all the cultural elements of Andros. A combination of sports and culture!

On the first day the 1km race for young athletes starts at the Korthi Bay central square, while the on the same day the 5km  Run&Hike – City Trail takes place as well, a race combining hiking and mountain race, perfect for the whole family.

On the second day athletes participate in the longer routes of this event, the 10km race along the Andros Route 5 and the longest route of 24km in a majestic scenery, through old pathways, traditional villages, dirt roads and asphalt, combining four routes of Andros Routes (5, 1, 18 & 3).

This year Andros Trail Race 2019 takes a step forward and incorporates charity and ecology. In other words we are supporting and running alongside with “ELPIDA Association”, helping to increase the number of bone marrow donors for those in need and we invite athletes and locals to volunteer.

With the aim of decreasing the environmental waste, the organization uses only biodegradable materials for the refreshment stations and the traditional Pasta Party.

This year the parallel events are plenty, including tours to the historical centre of Chora, visits to the Goulandris Museum of Modern Art, videos etc.
