LESVOSRUNNING - 18km

TIME: SUNDAY 01.10.2017 – START 10:00

LOCATION: MOLYVOS, VAFEIOS, LIGONAS

The race will take place on Sunday at 10:00 am, with starting point the woods above the football field in Molyvos. For the first 900 meters, the course of the race follows follows the asphalt road towards Eftalou. Turning right, the runners will cross the plain of Molyvos and then turn left onto the asphalt road going towards the village of Vafios. The first station is at the 3 km mark, showing the runners the correct course. The next 3 km up to the second station, which is located at St. John, is an uphill path covered with low vegetation. From an altitude of 50+ meters, the course rises to 310+ meters and at the 6.5 km point, having covered the first difficult kilometers, we are a breath away from the central station of the route, which is in the village of Vafeios. From this station, the course of the race is the same as that of the 40 km route and the stations will serve all the runners. The third station at Vafeios, at the 7.5 km point and an altitude of 310+ meters, will offer the runners replenishment so they may continue upon the race. The next part of the course is upon a small uphill slope on a rural dirt road to the springs of Ligona, above the coastal area of Petra and to the western end of the route. The rural dirt road here turns into a downhill path with a steep slope where, at a distance of 2 km, we will need to descend 255 meters, in other words from an altitude of 340+ down to 85+. The fourth station near the reservoir is at the 11.5 km point. Although we are close to the finish line, we still have one more summit to conquer. The summit of Caruna needs special care. Throughout the next 2 km, the path becomes a trail, following the perimeter of the Caruna. Due to the continuous alternations of the altitude and the ground, the intensity will be continuous but the view to the plain of Petra - Molyvos and the reservoir from above will be all the worthwhile, helping for the best end result.
