A few words about the story:
From the ancient Mendenitsa with its Mycenaean walls and its included medieval marquis and the castle – vigla of the Strait of Thermopylae, to the historic ancient castle of Tithroni and the castle of Drymaia, to reach the castle through the boonimos Elateia the capital of the Phocaean community, and to ascend through the lower Tithorea, to the legendary upper Tithorea the Velitsa of the more recent revolutionary years and to finish in the beautiful historical Amfiklia. Running in the footsteps of Giannis Diovouniotis, the first martyr Athanasios Diakos, the lion of Roumeli Odysseas Androutsos, the martyr Isaiah, bishop of Salona, the undefeated general Georgios Karaiskakis and Agonoliandon these heroic villages and towns that gave their blood in this epic of the liberation struggle 1821-1829. In their footsteps in this historic place 200 years later, the Greeks – and not only since the ambition of the event is to bring runners from other countries – will run this memorial race which will be held annually on the 3rd Sunday of June .
