The races, which were organised by the Central Corfu and Diapontia Islands Municipal Cultural and Sports Department in collaboration with the “Corfu Mountan Trail” and the local branch of SEGAS (Hellenic Athletics Federation), included a hiking route with the participation and support of the Corfu Hiking and Mountaineering Club. Musical events were, also, held in different parts of the town with the participation of various choirs.
The races were held on selected routes through the historical centre of Corfu Town, setting off from the St. Michael & St. George Palace and finishing in Liston. The programme included a 6.5km walk and 7km & 14km road races.
