The start and finish point of all routes will be at the Central Square of Chora. At the finish line, athletes will be provided with fresh local fruits and water.

Nestoria 2023 offers running enthusiasts the opportunity to participate in an 8km running race/walk at 19:00 in the historical town of Pylos.

An awards ceremony will follow after the completion of the races.
