In its second year, the Tinos Challenge is considered a challenge for runners, who are called to run through the ancient and contemporary trails of the Cycladic island of Tinos.
The Vertical Race
The vertical race will kick off on Saturday, December 2, from the Isternia bay. Participants are challenged to run a 1.5-km distance with 325 meters of vertical descent to reach the Isternia village. The athletes will run in groups of four and their final ranking will be based on their finish time.
20- and 4-km Races
The starting point of the 4-km race will also take place from the Monastery of Iera Kardia. Athletes will run through the settlements of Koumarou, Loutra and Ksinaras to reach the finish line, which is back at monastery.
Athletes who will manage to finish the race will receive championship points.
