The magic of Andros Trail Race,
A journey to the historical and cultural heritage of our island, through a mountain running race.
A challenging race for Cyclades, since it combines not only different elevation gain with racing field alterations, but also the fact that athletes run in old traditional trails which set the racing routes.
This is what makes Andros Trail Race so different and exciting.
Each athlete gets the change to run through traditional and picturesque villages, cobbled roads, stone threshing floors, impressive dry stone-walls (Xerolithies), wind and water mills, stone bridges consisting a beautiful environment and landscape.
Running on the first island in Europe to be recognized by the European Ramblers Association and certified as one of the Leading Quality Trails – Best of Europe is a unique experience. The Venetian castle of Faneromeni, the castle like monastery of Panachrandou, the dovecotes in Korthi and the panoramic view will take your breath away.
A race that challenges, excites, reveals and combines all cultural elements that characterize Andros and consist its unique identity.
A combination of sports and culture!
