Every race participating in the Cyclades Trail Cup has to follow guidelines regarding Cultural sub-events on every race event. In Kea island we “marry” sports with archaeology. Would you like to discover Kea by playing a game? Now you can form a team and participate in a brand new game creation by the Diadrasis team.
On Saturday 13 April, at 11:00, come with your team and search for clues in the surrounding area of Ioulida village of Kea island. Meet the local and form new friendships! The maximum limit of teams is set to 12 and every team can have from 2 up to 6 people.
Also on Saturday 13 April, after the Downhill race, all participants will be guided through the Ancient city of Karthaia. Same day, at 20:30 in Mylopotamos area, at the Folklore Museum, all participants can learn about the life o locals in the last 200 years.
*At night of Saturday 13 April, at 21:00, don’t forget to watch the Technical Presentation of the next days routes and learn more about the Kea Challenge trail race.
On Sunday 14 April, after the last runners finish, the winners of the Cyclades Trail Cup 2018 will be awarded.
Of course in Kea like in all of our events, local products will be offered freely!
