In this episode of the Podcast “It's a long road” with him as a guest Ultramarathon Tassos Karagiannidis we will do a review of the 107.5 km Euchideion Games that we ran together as a group on May 6-7, 2022 from Delphi to Plataies. A historic international long-distance race, of high standards, particularly difficult and demanding and perhaps the most difficult in Greece on asphalt.
THE A noble feat, 107.5 km Plataies-Delphi, or vice versa, is organized every year, and takes place consistently, on the 2nd weekend of May each year.
The historical battle of Plataea and the feat of the calendar Euchida, who ran from Plataea to Delphi and returned carrying the sacred light of Delphi for purification and a new beginning immediately after the battle, are in themselves the motivation, for every athlete to want to run this historic route.
It is a historic international match long distance, of high standards, particularly difficult and demanding and perhaps the most difficult in Greece on asphalt. The athletes are invited to climb and descend two historical mountains, Helikon and Parnassos, twice. The altitude differences are big, it is tiring and difficult, but at the same time beautiful and interesting.
The competitions are held under the auspices of the Region of Central Greece, the auspices, assistance and cooperation of the Municipalities of Thebes, Livadia, Distomo-Arachova-Antikyra and Delphi, other organizations, as well as with the participation and cooperation of friends, clubs, associations and organizations.
