OCTOBER 13th - 26th 2019

WHAT? Architecture, myths and stories, overgrown with olive groves, lush greenery and breathtaking beauty, historic monuments, stunning natural landscape, crystal clear seas, and its excellent weather all year round to put a powerful spell on us. All of this provides us the perfect setting for a Trail Run Adventure. Starting the week off with an exciting tour around Athens, through all the nooks and crannies of the ancient streets and monuments, before heading off to the coast to explore some of the highest mountains, the deepest canyons and the steepest cliffs over the clearest of waters. The second part of the trip will be spent sailing from island to island, discovering new trails and staying on a private catamaran. For this part of the journey you will be staying in close quarters on the catamaran, sharing double beds and bathrooms with the other guests. Recover each day with incredible mediterranean cuisine, and relax with the flavour of local wines. Running, climbing, sailing, diving and olive/wine tasting tours. *Itinerary is weather dependent.

WHO? This adventure is for everyone. Greece is full of adventures for us all. Some trails are extremely technical, some are smooth and flowy so we can make an adventure to fit everyone on the trip. This is an opportunity to run, climb, explore, swim, eat and drink and stretch out and relax together with the guides and local Greek runners on their island, mountains and trails. This trip is limited to 8 people.
