This mountain race takes athletes deep into the heart of the island's second highest summit Mount Palouki.

All the races start and finish at the historical old port, runners shall climb straight up into the main village where they shall be greeted with the traditional characteristics of the Skopalitian architecture. We shall continue to climb via a labyrinth of narrow streets and the famed steps of the Chora eventually exiting onto the ring road where we shall continue downhill towards the Stafylos road before heading southeast on the dirt tracks upwards towards Mount Palouki.
