Spetses Mini Marathon 7th-9th October 2016

The island of Spetses with its rich history and seafaring traditions plays host to the Spetses Mini Marathon for the 6th consecutive year. This year’s events take place from 7th to 9th  October. With the island’s policy prohibiting the use of private cars, it is the ideal location for this great sporting event!

The Spetses Mini Marathon takes place between the evergreen of the pines and the deep blue of the sea. The natural beauty of the landscape is impressive. The panoramic views of Spetses, the nearby islands and the Peloponnesian coast, offer an idyllic backdrop for spectators and athletes alike.

Communication Lab, in conjunction with the Municipality of Spetses, have been successfully organizing this sporting event since 2010. Each year it attracts more and more entries, and has now become an institution in the sporting calendar for many athletes, from all over the world.

All routes and activities are designed to show off the unique architecture and culture of Spetses as well as its unparalleled natural beauty.
