Join in on the ultimate sports experience that is taking place in one of the top destinations worldwide, Santorini island, on May 1 - 3.

The Thira Municipality, the Municipal Sports Cultural & Environmental Organization in Santorini and the award-winning Group of Active Media are jointly organizing the Santorini Experience which includes open water swimming and trail running. The route can be considered one-of-a-kind as runners will come across the panoramic views of the island’s famous volcano, the caldera and colours of volcanic stone.

On May 2, the "experience" for participants kicks off with a 2.4 km swimming route starting from the volcano’s harbor. A specially-shaped finish arch at the pier of Fira’s old port will indicate the swim finish. On May 3, the action will start in Oia where 15-, 10- and 5-kilometres races will take place.
