It is with great pleasure that the Karyas Cultural Association announces the creation of a mountain running race on the slopes of Mount Olympus, in our area, Karya Elassona!
The race, named “Karya Olympus Trail”, will take place on May 24, 2020, on the slopes of the Thessalian Olympus, at our place, Karya Elassona. In particular, the race, starting and ending in Karya, will run old and historic trails in the area, 25 kilometers long and 1500 meters high.
The launch will be from the village square at 9:00 in the morning and a bit later, the smaller race will begin at the 8-mile and 600-meter “Titnata Trail”. Most of the trails on the routes are unfamiliar and opened with the personal care and care of locals who know the area well and support the effort.
The event organizer is Kariotis Lefteris Kavaratzis, an athlete with extensive experience and experience in mountain racing.
