mythical route to the center of the earth

Euchidios hyper-athlos Delphi-Plataea-Delphi 215 klm.

Euchidios athlos Plataea-Delphi 107,5 klm.


The transfer of the Delphic flame at Plataea 2500 years ago, by the soldier runner swift-footed Euchidas, constitutes a referance point and starter 22 years now for hundrends of runners who had run this historical route.

The historical battle of Plataea ,the most decisive victory of the Hellenic army against the Persians, and the feat of Euchidas after the battle constitute the reason for every athlete to run this historical route.

The awe and the emotion of athletes when they're facing from above earth's center is great and even larger is the joy when at the finishing pont the athletes rewarded with laurel crown and the unique symbol-prize of the race, the torch of Euchidas.

All these are milestones for each athlete especially when he makes his first 'steps" on long diastance races.

The race, for the 107,5 klm distance and the reversal for the 215 klm distance, starts from the archaeological site of Plataea next to the battlefield of the most decisive victory of Greeks and challenges each athlete to repeat himself the feat of Euchidas. Athletes start the race by crossing the plain of Plataea with the battlefield on their right; they run at the dirt road besides the canal of Mornos for 5 klm to reach the historical Lefktro. They continue for Ellopia, Xironomi, Domvrena and ancient Thisvi, from where it begins the ascent of the mountain of the Muses of Helicon. Athletes pass through 2 beautiful villages, Sent Anna and Kuriaki. Then they descent and encounter Steiri and the historical Distomo, to begin to go up again to the slopes of Mountain Parnassus up to the picturesque Arachova. From there they descent to Delphi, the Earth's center! The imposing landscape and breeze of the space is unique in the world.
