Inauguration of procedure for participation declarations


Preparations for the 5th anniversary ‘’Hydra’s Trail Event’’ have already been intensified. Friends of mountain running will experience dozens of excitement and will enjoy the most integrated facilities which can provide the exquisite Argosaronic  island.

The desirable opening of registrations will be held on Monday,15th January 2018 and the expiring date of registrations as every year, reasonably  this year as well will not be announced since Hydra’s Trail Event each time is too soon full! Inscriptions as always will be made through our website www.hydrastrail.gr and the maximum number of athletes who can be accepted will be again 1.000. In this way, our high quality services to the competitors will be ensured for one more year.

Almost without exception, the top 200 athletes who will register and will validate their registration by distributing the amount of 20,00€, will be transferred from Athens to Hydra and vice versa, free of charge through means of the organization.  For this purpose, bus routes are scheduled to depart on Friday afternoon, 30th March and on Saturday morning, 31st March, from the center of Athens and on Sunday afternoon, 1st April, concerning the return to Athens. Further details will be announced in a new oncoming press release.

Finally, it should be recalled that all athletes have the potentiality to take part in up to three races in total but have paid only one participation. Our objective is that participants will be as familiar as possible to the beauties of the island. Route planning has been done in such a way as to include mountain and coastal paths and cobbled streets within the unique picturesque scene of Hydra. Is the only place in Greece where there are no wheeled vehicles and paths do outweigh! We expect you all, promising as always an unforgettable racing weekend full of running, action but also intense emotions.
