#NavarinoChallenge will take place on October 11-13 in #Messinia and Costa Navarino, with more than 10 Olympic sports and numerous activities for everyone.
Through its central message #sportsunitepeople, Navarino Challenge aims to promote sports with inter-generational activities catering to all age groups.
Participants will have the opportunity to choose between the Half Marathon (21.1km), 10km, and 5km (running & power walking). Starting from the Navarino Dunes of Costa Navarino, professional and amateur athletes will #run along the picturesque coast to #Pylos, crossing the beautiful #Voidokilia beach, tracing history beneath their feet in King Nestor’s land. They will follow the trail mapped out in the Homeric era by Telemachus, Ulysses’ son, trying to find his missing father. #Openwaterswimming enthusiasts will have the chance to compete in a chip-timed event at the beautiful #NavarinoBay from the scenic Pylos harbour, covering the unique 1 mile (1.6 km) route of the open swimming race by Vikos.
Greek basketball legend #NickGalis, the first Greek basketball player to have joined the #HallofFame will be present at the award-winning event for the first time!
