the peloponnese trail-trophy

 Greece – From the 17th to the 24th of Sept. 2022 

“In the footsteps of Sparta

Along the Peloponnese peninsula

We propose a 5-stage Sea and Mountain UltraTrail on the Peloponnese peninsula, located southwest of Athens. Discover the ancient playground of Sparta, rich in history and scenery. This turquoise coloured trip is a surprising adventure with its blue and white postcard villages. We will stay in a beautiful hotel with swimming pool on the island of Poros, connected to the mainland by a 15 minute ferry ride. Our 5 stages take place on the Aderes mountain range, which rises between 700m and 1000m, giving you breathtaking views of the sea.

Run in the footsteps of the first marathon runners, under a blazing sun to develop your skills as you race through mountains, seas and deserts. Follow winding tracks through forests teeming with life, through unsuspected landscapes, and past ancient archaeological sites along the way. A unique stay in a region full of secrets, just waiting to be explored, between stage races, warm encounters, ancestral cultures, and gastronomy rich in history, we promise you amazement and subjugation.

WELCOME to the paths of the first marathoners!

With 6 raids realized in Greece since 2007,

NED wishes to renew the adventure for an 8th edition.

After 7 years of absence in the cradle of Democracy.

After being elaborated, the itineraries and routes were checked and adjusted in the field, both by the Nature Extreme Development staff and our Greek correspondents during the month of September 2022.

It is not just a race, it is a journey designed with care and passion.

Choice of courses :

  • Trail Course : A 116km course in the form of a timed individual race with classification. 
  • Trek Course : You also have the possibility of setting off on a gentler 80km, non-timed formula with shorter stages, while retaining the most beautiful landscapes that Greece and its famous Peloponnese peninsula has to offer (from 3.5km/h).

Itineraries :

They are given as an indication. They can be modified according to the weather conditions of the moment, technical criteria or the physical condition of the participants. In the last resort, the supervisor remains the sole judge of the programme, which he may adapt or modify for safety reasons.
