Corfu Old Town Trail a great success and enjoyed by all!

CORFU. Just under 250 runners took part in this year΄s successful Corfu Old Town Trail running 6.5km and 14km through the historical centre.

October / 2020

All those taking part, whether walking or running through the historical centre, thoroughly enjoyed this year's Corfu Old Town Trail organised by Central Corfu & Diapontia Islands Municipality, Corfu Mountain Trail and the local branch of the Hellenic Amateur Athletic Association (SEGAS).

Just under 250 people took part in the 14km and 6.5km routes - twice last year's number but less than there would have been if there hadn't been restrictions from the Sports General Secretariat due to Covid-19. Mayor Meropi Ydraiou - who took part in the walk - expressed her satisfaction at the end.

The swimming Olympic medallist Spyros Yianniotis was also present and spoke to camera just after the start.

The event organisation, during the pandemic, was deemed to be a complete success and demonstrated that the aim of the local authority to make it an annual event with local and international participation can surely become a reality. This was also demonstrated by the enthusiastic support of local cultural, sports and voluntary groups.
