Andros Trail Race 2017
Following the great success of the first Andros Trail Race – Mountain Run of Andros, in a few days we are waiting for the launch of the 2nd Andros Trail Race 2017. Athletic tourism is an alternative form of tourism. It is closely related to nature and leisure activities. Getting in touch with our natural environment takes place through many sports activities. Andros Trail Race – mountain running has a non competitive character and recreation base through the sport.
On Sunday 1st October 2017, it is the day for lovers of nature, mountain and sea. They will enjoy two unique races on the Andros trails, 10 and 24 km. The race is organized by the Andros Trail Race (Trekking Andros & Outdoor Activities) in a co-organization with the Municipality of Andros. The aim of the event is to promote the island, hiking routes, alternative tourism and the spread of sports.
Andros Trail Race for children
This year’s Andros Trail Race was enriched with two parallel events, 5km and 1km for children. They will take place on Saturday September 30, one day before the official and main events. The Main Long Route of 24 km and the Main Small Route of 10 km. From the joy of running, contact with nature and noble competition we could not exclude our little friends. So, we also prepared a junior route this year. 1 km for those… athletes wanting to get a first taste of mountain running. With small hills and few stairs. All children from 6 to 17 years of age can get in touch with running!
