The Spetses Mini Marathon introduced three new races this year. The new 10K run, the non-competitive My First Spetses mini Marathon (500m run) for infants and pre-school kids (accompanied by their parents), as well as the full Kosta-Spetses (3.000m) swimming competition, were added to a total number of 8 events for 2014.
