Vamvakou Mountain Run 2024

Save the date: Sunday June, 16 of 2024; Vamvakou, Lakonia

Are you a fan of running and after alternative runs throughout trails in nature? Do you like running and gazing at lush landscapes and clusters of trees? Are you looking for runs with upward and downward slopes at an altitude? Are you getting prepared for a major mountain run and searching for a nice event to do some training? Then, Vamvakou Mountain Run is exactly what you are looking for! A sports event scheduled this year to take place on Sunday June, 16 of 2024 for the fourth time in the village of Vamvakou in Lakonia, organised by Vamvakou Revival within the framework of the initiative for the revival of the village with the support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).

It is a mountain run across the slopes of Mount Parnon in Lakonia, with the village of Vamvakou as the starting point and finish line. This year, for the first time, the event will include three routes of 28, 18 and 7 kilometres respectively through gorges, forest roads and trails, starting from an altitude of 950 meters all the way up to 1,900 meters to reach an idyllic mountain setting, after following a route of varied landscape. Last year, more than 380 runners from Attica and Peloponnese got together in the village and participated in this great run.

At Vamvakou Mountain Run, official electronic timing applies so that all runners can be informed of their performance. All runners will get a medal as a souvenir for their participation, while awards will be attributed to the best performances. The purpose of the event is to bring out the natural wealth of the wider area and encourage participation in activities and events in nature, giving the chance to visitors to get familiar with the lush green trails of Mount Parnon and live the experience of Vamvakou.

Stay tuned! The platform for registration for the Run will open in April!
