A few words about the history…
LILANTIOS HALF MARATHON
Lilantas, the river from which the “Lilantio field” took its name.
The Lilandio plain was the reason for the civil war between Chalkida and Eretria. Eretria and Chalkida were allied with most of the cities that have ever fought in a civil war, which is why it was characterized as the most destructive civil war in the history of Greece. Years later, the Chalcidians and Eretrians, as allies, founded the Monkey Colony in Italy. In modern Greece and today, the people of Chalkida and Eretria are allied for education and sports and ask the other cities of Greece to ally with them as a united force for unity and solidarity, for education and for the sports spirit and ideal. !
Come all together to run the Lilantio Half Marathon and to give together the message that only sports can!
Run means change, change means life! We are waiting for you!
