* For minors: I am the guardian of the minor who I registered to participate in the race.

I have read and agree to the terms and conditions.

Volos Half Run and I Love Volos Run are sporting activities designed to highlight the city of Volos, the natural beauty of the region and the sea.

The Volos Half Run is not a “race” but a “leisure event”, with its own terms, conditions and rules of conduct that may resemble those of a race, but not to athletes but to sports fitness enthusiasts, with no formal athletic capacity! Consequently, neither the event nor its participants represent the meaning of the sport and the athletes respectively, as defined by sporting legislation (Law 2725/1999, Law 4603/2019) but the concept of sport tourism, as described in the Law on “Thematic Tourism” (Law 4582/2018). Therefore, any association of our event with the concept of ‘race’ and its participants with the concept of ‘athletes’ is completely arbitrary and will be treated by our organization as deliberate, deceitful and malicious. Our organization reserves the right to take any legal action against those who cause us any financial or moral damage as a result of such treatment!

The race is being held under the auspices of EOLSMA-Y (Hellenic Federation of Folk Massage – Long Distance Clubs).
