The

route

Rookie Trail Race – Distance 8km with a Cumulative Elevation Gain of 410m.

Since Hydra is an island without roads, its network of paths has been preserved in excellent condition. These paths connect chapels, settlements, beaches, old fields, pastures and of course reach the highest peaks of the island.

What is the Rookie Trail Race?

It is an 8 km route that aims to highlight the beauties of the mountainous landscape of Hydra, but at the same time it is adapted to the data of a beginner.

It is ideal even as a hiking route!

Ydra’s trail race 2017. Οι αλλαγές στη φετινή διαδρομή έφεραν την απόλυτη ισορροπία ώστε να μην έχει κανένας παράπονο αφού έχουμε πλέον πολύ γρήγορα κομμάτια αλλά και πολύ τεχνικά τα οποία απαιτούν πολύ προσοχή όταν προσπαθείς να κινηθείς γρήγορα! Για την διοργάνωση, την φιλοξενία και την ατμόσφαιρα δεν έχουμε να προσθέσουμε τίποτα αφού κάθε χρόνος που περνάει το άψογο γίνεται τέλειο και δε ξέρω τι άλλο θα μπορούσε να προσφέρει η εκδήλωση στο μέλλον.
Συγχαρητήρια σε όλους τους συντελεστές της επιτυχίας για ακόμη μια φορά!

Ύδρα Αγώνες Βουνού 2016… Δυστυχώς δεν μπόρεσα να βρίσκομαι εκεί φέτος για προσωπικούς λόγους… Εύχομαι όλα να πάνε καλά το 2018 και να είμαστε όλοι εκεί σε έναν από τους καλύτερους αγώνες που πραγματοποιούνται στην Ελλάδα!!!

analysis

8 km distance with 410 m positive elevation

The start will take place from the port at and the first part of the route is shared with that of the long route. The last segment is shared with the Half Marathon

1st part: Distance 2.600 m.

Start at the port. We follow the central cobbled road of the island that goes up towards the mountain for the 1st kilometer. The 2nd kilometer is initially on an uphill concrete road which we leave by turning left onto a steeply uphill path known as "red dirt". We arrive at 2.7km where a walled door. WARNING the long tracks continue straight through the door but we go right uphill

2nd part: Distance 1.700 m.

After a small uphill we enter an easy flat section. We pass behind a farm (with a house and olive trees) and traverse to old stables. It starts downhill and we cross a stream. We gradually climb up and reach ruins (the spot is called old nuns). Here we meet the route of the other races and now we follow.

3rd part: Distance 3.500 m.

A wonderful downhill cobblestone in a dense pine forest that will bring us to the highest point of the settlement with a fantastic view from the port. At the location "Achuria" there is a refueling station (5.5km) and a volunteer shows us the way.We enter the first houses. The settlement of Kaminia is particularly picturesque. We run on cobblestones crossing its little port. Then we run between the stone houses and the taverns. Approaching the port of Hydra, we hear the applause and enter the port's horseshoe. Surely the finish we will experience is the most beautiful as all the inhabitants of Hydra will be waiting to cheer the last athlete.
