On Sunday 25th April 2018 I had the privilege of running the “ROUTE OF TRUCE” which was a 50km (specifically 49.9km!) trail from Ancient Ilis to Ancient Olympia, sponsored by the FEDERATION OF OLYMPIA, NATO, OPAP, LEGEA, AUTOUNIT POULAKIS, THE HELLENIC ARMY………….. and the list goes on.

Last Sunday 25th February we ran our first relay doing the 11km Lycabettus Run – 5,5kms each.
A lovely race with its many uphills however as each loop was 2,75kms it somehow did not feel so difficult. Everyone says that The Run the Lake race has the most steep uphills but I don’t think that they have done the Lycabettus!! Not as scenic however it has its own story to tell as a race!
Thankfully the participants were only 1100 as if we were more, I don’t think that the event organizers could manage much more. Continue reading
Over one milion Greeks rallied in the streets of Athens to protest against the government’s proposal over the name Macedonia. This dispute has lasted decades, governments have changed however still not resolved. Continue reading
This is one of the most common queries for this period – is it okay to run with a cold. Especially after the Holidays where we have gone out more and dressed less!!
As always, its that time of the year again where one looks back and recalls all those special (and not so) moments.

This weekend’s long run was very exciting as we were at “that point” again……. the point of 30kms!! It shouldn’t be so challenging as it is only 2 kms more than last Saturday however it is the idea of having to complete a long run that has a 3 in front!!! Continue reading
While some “concerned friends” may try to convince you that it’s not very clever to run many kilometers and marathons over the age of 50, it has been proven that running is a safe, healthy exercise for people of any age, whether you’re new to running (as it’s never too late to start) or a veteran runner!!!
It’s about that time again………….. with only 16 weeks to go ………………………………..till the 35th Athens Classical Marathon 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.
