This was a unique experience for the 300 athletes from 25 countries around the world, who came to the area to participate in the first off-road triathlon race to be held in Greece.
The event offers cash prizes to the winners and potential qualification to the finals of the XTERRA World Championships, for the top athletes in each category.
Greece has been a member of the XTERRA racing family since 2013, as part of the European Tour and the World Tour.
