Spartakiada

October 07 2017
Athens, Attica, Greece

“Spartakiada” is Greece’s greatest cyclosportive event linking the two most important cities of ancient Greece, Athens & Sparta. In old days professional messengers ran the distance in two days, today we use bicycles to challenge our endurance and cover the distance between 8 to 12 hours! The 2015 race is the event’s 27th anniversary.

The event, organised by the Hellenic Bicycle Union of Veteran Athletes, starts in front of one of the most attractive places in the capital city of Athens, the Panathenaic Stadium or Kallimarmaron, the athletic stadium that hosted the first modern Olympic Games in 1896.

“Spartakiada” finishes after 250 km in the city of Sparta, a prominent city-state in ancient Greece, situated on the banks of the Eurotas River in Laconia, in south-eastern Peloponnese, right in front of the King Leonidas statue. You will be riding through the cities of Korinthos, Tripoli and the beautiful landscape of Northern Peloponnesus.
