All participants must choose either the Mini or Mega challenge and run the first day’s route and choose another for the second day . SPIKE; The starting point of Spike is at the famous beach of Kolona, next to the port of Merichas. Runners will be separated into small groups of 5-10 participants. By starting on the beach, the goal is to reach a pre-marked spot on the top of the hill, get a stamp mark from the volunteer posted there and return to the finish line on the beach. The spike race has NO official route and runners will have to discover by their own how to reach the marks. Every traditional village has its own fountain with water. Since you are a long distance runner, it would be wise to have your own flask with you and refill it every time you can. The refreshment stations will offer you: water, Epsa soda, Nissos beer, dry nuts, dry grapes, fruit and local products
