Organizers of the 4th Tinos Challenge trail running race announce the cancellation of the event.
The Tinos Challenge trail running event started in 2016 with the support of small local businesses and local communities. There are no financial sponsorship and the Municipality of Tinos is not supporting the event. All expenses are covered from the participation fees and with private money from the directors. There is no golden sponsor and all security issues must be achieved by applying pressure to local authorities. For the Tinos Challenge 2019 no sufficient local support had been achieved and security risks were still uncovered.
Although there was a change of date for the race, there was no major impact to the local community and the necessary support was not found even then. Organizers decided to cancel the event indefinitely.
