Santorini, a famous volcanic island in the Cyclades, is hosting a new athletic event, Santorini Experience, in May 1st-3rd, 2015. The Santorini Experience is an ultimate sports experience, as it allows athletes to discover the beauty and magic of the island through running or swimming along its most picturesque parts.
The event includes several running routes along the edge of the magnificent caldera and a swimming race from the volcano to the old port of Fira (distance 1,5 mile). On the first day of the Santorini Experience, the student running races will take place, followed, on the second day, by the swimming races, while on the last day comes the half-marathon (21,5 km distance) from Oia to Fira, alongside the caldera. Parallel short running and trekking races will also take place.
The event is graciously organized by the municipality of Thira and the Santorini Municipal Sports, Culture and Environmental Organization in collaboration with Active Media Group and with the technical support of Xterra Greece, and sponsored by the Santorini Hotels Association, Reef and The North Face.
