Skiathos Trail Run

On September 24th, we are running in the Skiathos Trail Run! With 6 routes for adults and children, everyone is sure to find the race that suits them!

The start of the international half-marathon mountain running, 24 km, will be given at the Old Port in front of the Bourtzi. The route consists of 90% forest and mountain trails and 10% asphalt. It is a beautiful route that connects the town of Skiathos with the medieval town of the island, the unparalleled and wild beauty of the Castle, showcasing both the natural beauty of the island’s interior and its cultural heritage. The Urban Trail 10 km starts at Bourtzi. Runners will cross an exciting route through the streets of the city and around the lake.

Anyone 16 years and older can participate in the race. In parallel, there will be an 800 m race, with the valuable assistance of escorts along the old port of Skiathos.

Various running races ensure that all our young friends will run on routes made for them! Specifically: a 500 m race for children in grades A’, B’, and C’ of elementary school, 1000 m for students in grades D’ to F’ of elementary school, and 1,500 m for children in grades A’, B’, and C’ of high school. Participation for all children is free.
