Professional and amateur runners will be meeting up in the capital of the Cyclades islands in Greece on September 12 for the first Syros City Trail.

Syros_City_Trail_logo_1Jointly organized by Chronosystems and LifeRacing with the support of Syros Runners and the Syros-Ermoupoli municipality, the Syros City Trail promises to be an important athletic event for the Greek island.

Aimed at promoting the historical and cultural heritage of Ermoupoli via major attractions along the running routes, including the town hall at Miaouli Square, the Markos Vamvakaris Museum and the numerous Orthodox and Catholic churches, the Syros City Trail offers participants the choice of three routes: the 10km, the 4km or the 1km kiddies race.

Amenities will be provided, first aid will be available and photographers will be covering the event.

Prizes will be awarded to the first three men and first three women completing the 10km and 4km races, while all participants finishing their respective races will be awarded a commemorative medal.

In the meantime, all athletes will have the opportunity to win gifts from the race’s sponsors via a special lottery.
