The 5 km race takes place within the plains of Mesta, encircling the village. For the 10 km race, participants must complete two laps of the same route. Teenagers and adults are eligible to participate. However, the 10 km distance is not recommended for children under 12.

Chios is a Greek island located in the northeastern Aegean Sea. It is best known for its beautiful landscapes, historical sites, and the unique product known as mastic, which comes from the mastic trees found on the island. During the summer, Chios offers visitors a wide range of activities. You can relax on beautiful beaches with crystal-clear waters, explore medieval villages like Mesta and Pyrgi with their unique architecture, and have a taste of delicious local cuisine at traditional tavernas. Additionally, Chios hosts various cultural events, festivals, and sports activities, making it an ideal destination for both relaxation and exploration during the summer months.
