Lycabettus Run – 11kms relay


Last Sunday 25th February we ran our first relay doing the 11km Lycabettus Run – 5,5kms each.

Agistri swimming and running 2017


This weekend is the Agistri Running and Swimming Race 2017 and one of our favorite races on this beautiful tiny green island with its crystal clear waters and golden sands.


What more can one ask for!  An ideal weekend of running and relaxing, just one hour from the Port of Piraeus!

The event is always perfectly organized and well attended because of this.

The people of Agistri are hospitable, making the whole experience magical.

I couldn’t help but post some great pics from our experience last year.



So sorry we couldn’t make it this year ……….. but make a promise for the next one in 2018.
