Follow the steps of Zeus.

A mountain race in Crete, with high international standards which was first born in June 2008 on Mt Olympus.

Imposing Psiloritis also known as Mt. Idil, soars skyward for 2456m, making it Crete's highest mountain and is well known as the place where Zeus brought up.

Like a friendly giant, it serenades a green quilt of valleys and villages and often wears a monk's tonsure of snow well into spring.

Having the support of the people who love the island and enjoy running on the mountains, we organize this event which is called the "Psiloritis Race" (PR). A gretat event which is organized by people who love the island and enjoy running on the mountains and the kind support of the prefecture of Rethymno.

The International Mountain Race "Psiloritis Race" is an athletic meeting that forwards physical activity in touch with the natural environment. The race offers the opportunity to experience the unique and exciting character of the mountain along with the opportunity for the participants to experience a unique vigorous seven-hour race.

That is the reason why the athletes who will try out their strength in the Psiloritis Race should practice the philosophy of semi autonomy, carrying a least a necessary equipment that will provide them with security and sustenance during the race ; while there will be a systematical and in regular intervals supply.

For this well-organized and innovative event the response has far exceeded all the expectations of the organizing committee which aims to attract more and more athletes every year.

With your participation either as athletes or as volunteers or spectators along with your comments and feedback will help this event to achieve the best possible result.

Everyone is invited to join the Race in any way he chooses.

The race will start at 07.30 am on Sunday 2 of June 2013 from the site Nida plateau of Psiloritis mountain
