Since 2011 when Zagori Mountain Running was held for the first time, until last year, in just six years, it has been a tremendous success leaving the best impressions to more and more athletes running in the trails. And this is due to the organizing team of the event.
With the strong support of its sponsors, the integration of Tymfi Endurance Race (TeRA 80km) and the love of the local community that has embraced the event, Zagori Mountain Running has grown from a “simple” marathon, to what is, perhaps, the highlight of mountain running in our country.
The objectives of the organization team are constantly changing, since the very organization and its requirements evolve. We try, therefore, to, always, be getting closer to these goals. In any case, the main objective of the group is to convey the philosophy of the sport, to atract people to running, focusing on both the amateur who is exercising for health and the athlete who seeks constant improvement.
In 2016, the team managed to attract participants from 25 countries emphasizing on sports tourism. Participation in Zagori Mountain Running is for many people inside and outside Greece, a good enough reason to visit the region of Zagori. During the same year, Zagori Mountain Running was awarded the Tourism Awards 2015 Silver Award in the category “sports tourism”, marking the event as one of the most important in Greece.
