Jointly organized by Chronosystems and LifeRacing with the support of Syros Runners and the Syros-Ermoupolis municipality, the Syros City Trail proved to to be an important athletic event for the Greek island.
Aggeliki Geronikou clinched first prize in the ladies’ category with a time of 01:05.14, Aristotela Katsoulou came in second at 01:09.29 and Asimina Igglezou third at 01:12.03.
In the meantime, athletes had the opportunity to participate in the fun during the pre-race pasta party and win gifts from the race’s sponsors via a special lottery.
Aimed at promoting the historical and cultural heritage of Ermoupolis 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 1st Syros City Trail paved the way for the second event next year. Organisers invite sportsmen and women, young and old, to participate in the 2nd Syros City Trail, set for September 2016.
The Greek Travel Pages (GTP) was a mega media sponsor of the 1st Syros City Trail.
