Nikouria Spike – Technical Description
The weekend begins with a race on the deserted islet of Nikouria, to which you will arrive by traditional fishing boat. Our “Spike” is purely a fun race, the only one of its type in Greece! Runners taking part in this race will start their ascent at sea level and head for one of the peaks of Nikouria island. Your challenge will be to reach the checkpoint at the top, receive a special stamp from our volunteers and begin your descent to the finish line on the beach.
The Spike race does not have a marked route, so you will have to make your own way to the checkpoint!
Participants in the “Nikouria Spike” race must be aware of the participation conditions and the safety rules established by the Organizer, and must follow the Technical Director’s instructions.
** Knee-length socks are mandatory for this race. Hiking poles are optional.
*** Spike race – in the event of adverse weather conditions that do not allow travel to Nikouria, the organizers reserve the right to transfer the race to an alternative location.
Start/Finish line: The start and finish line will be on Nikouria beach.
Start time: 1st wave: 11.00 a.m. – waves every 5-10 mins
