In October 2019 I will be attempting the first ever long-distance run that will span the entire length of Andros. Starting from the Southern tip at Steno and running to the Northern prominence of the island at Kambano. The aim of this is to then create a route that can be used by others wishing to pursue an ultra distance challenge in the Greek islands. Crossing the main four ridges of Andros at their highest point, this route will be approximately 45 miles (72km) long with over 8000ft (2440m) of ascent. Dirt road, trails and Andros Routes paths will comprise the route which will take in much of the stunning Cycladic scenery Andros has to offer. I will publish the full route soon and for those wishing to attempt this challenge I intend to eventually create an online registry of attempts / dates / times. This challenge would be suitable for solo attempts or as part of a group or team. Andros terrain is notoriously rocky and mountainous therefore providing a real challenge for those wishing to push themselves. From a location point of view, it is also a great spot to put your feet up and relax after a tough physical challenge and enjoy some of the most delicious food in Greece.
More to follow soon…….
