Greece – Archaeological Site of Delphi

2018 will see the inauguration of Dolihos, another majestic Greek race covering the holy Greek ancient cites of Delfi and Olympia.

Any runner with a desire to run a long distance race in Greece has a range of choices (Athens Marathon, Spartathlon), all with historic roots, and 2018 will see the inauguration of another majestic race covering the holy Greek ancient cites of Delphi and Olympia.

The Dolihos race combines the ancient sites of Delphi and Olympia, and with a length of 255 kilometres, is even longer than its more established counterpart, the Spartathlon.

While places in the Spartathlon are always in short supply because of its international reputation, entries are still available for the Dolihos, which will take place from the 27th to 29th April. The race is set among attractive and varied scenery, with 60% on dirt roads and footpaths.
