Privileged accommodation packages during the days of the event! The exquisite event “Santorini Experience” is ready to welcome the lovers of swimming and running on October 7-9, 2016!
Runners will discover the magical trail that connects Oia with Fira overlooking the Caldera of Santorini (Thira), which took its name from Thira, the first Spartan colonist of the island. A detailed description of the routes including maps and technical details (altitude) is available in the following link:
It must also be noted that with the suggestion of the technical director of running, three vertical running routes will be prepared this year to enrich the weekend schedule of the event.
Ancient Santorini (Thira) was an earthly paradise, destroyed in 1,500 BC, along with a multitude of nearby coasts, dragging brilliant samples of the Aegean civilization. Its description fits perfectly with what Plato was saying for the mythical land of the Atlases that was completely destroyed, leaving no trace behind. The Atlantis.
So over the sunken Atlantis participants in the sport of swimming will have the opportunity to swim in the unique swimming route of 1.5 mile (2.4 km) of “Santorini Experience”, on Sunday, October 9, 2016 at 10:00 am, from the volcano to the old port in Fira.
The route has been designed by the Federal Technical Coach of Swimming, with Olympic and World distinctions in open water swimming and Technical Director of the event in swimming, Nikos Gemelos. The event will also be held under the auspices of the Hellenic Swimming Federation (KOE), something that happens for the first time in open water swimming, at a sports tourism event, marking the explosive participation expected from swimmers and swimming clubs from all over Greece and abroad.
