Faethon Olympus Marathon: on 11 – 12th July 2020 the racing weekend of the 9th F.O.M “Apostolos Tsourekas”
The absolute “sky running” date for all athletes will be held for the 9th consecutive year on 11-12July 2020 in Olympus, Thessaly with the three races of the organization -F.O.M. 44km, RUPICAPRA 20km and Faethon Trail 14km- offering epic moments to the athletes.
Faethon Olympus Marathon is an astonishing Sky race, running 30 of the total 44km in an altitude over 2000m and crossing 10 peaks over 2000m altitude, among them the second highest summit in Greece, Skolio (2911m).
Rupicapra, the half marathon, is a “miniature” of his big brother F.O.M. Starting at the village of Kokkinopilos, for about 7.8km you will be in an altitude of 2000m and will pass through the highest point of the route, the peak Flambouro (2455m).
Faethon Trail aims to less experienced athletes who want to taste the experience of a mountain running race. This race will be held on Saturday 11th 2020 in the afternoon
The organizing committee will continue, as it does from the outset, upgrading the races and services offered to the athletes.
And for 2020 FOM will continue to be a member of I.T.R.A. where he belongs since 2016!
