The Downhill race is the first race of that nature that first held in Hydra’s Trail Event in 2014.Nowadays is becoming more and more popular among the athletes and is also called Fly Running. On this year’s trail on Hydra for fourth time in a row, the athletes will run on an altitude 500 m and the finishing line will be at the race arch, at zero altitude, after 3.8 km. Since 2016, the finishing record for the Downhill Race is 10 minutes and 18 seconds (10’:18’’).This year, the I.Rappas&Sia OE company, www.isaloshydra.gr , gives a prize of 250€ and a 3-day trip to Hydra with all expenses paid (included, tickets, accommodation, one meal), to those who finish in less than ten minutes(10:00).
Also, a money prize will be given at the first team of the Eros Mountain Trail (26 km, with positive altitude 1250m) that takes place on April 9.The winning team is the one with the best time among its three best athletes. The GEORGIOS MELACHROINOS & SIA E.E “Sinialo Café”, gives a 300€ prize to the winning team.
Also for the past 2 years and this year, there is the Ranking Challenge prize. It appears as follows: Time of Downhill summed with time of Eros Mountain Trail. The smallest sum of time gives the winner of the Challenge and a 300€ prize.
Don’t forget that there are also a lot of other prizes and presents for the athletes, that will be given during the race weekend.
