Hydra might have no roads to speak of but its network of trails connecting its settlements with its beaches, monasteries, chapels, old pastures and its highest peaks are maintained in excellent condition.
What is Rock Race;
The Rock Race is an 18 km mountain running event which aspires to highlight the beauty of Hydra’s mountain scenery, without exposing the participants to the demanding elements of the Hydra’s Trail Marathon. It guides the runners through old threshing floors, chapels, abandoned windmills and ancient foot bridges, but the best part is, arguably, the coastal portions of the race where you will be running along the coast.
Distance: 18,0 km
The Rock Race will start at the port and the first section, as well as the last is the same as that of the Hydra’s Trail Marathon.
Cumulative elevation gain: 1,015 m
