One of the most technical races of its kind in Greece, this course on Mount Olympus makes an ideal Vertical Kilometer® over a distance of 4.3 km.

After just 250m from the start at 1,047m altitude, the steep uphill section is immediately felt. The vertical climb continues along a path following a ridge. A flatter area between 2.5 km and 3.3 km offers the chance to race at a faster pace. The last long ascent leads to the finish line at 2,063m where finally a breather can be had – and the views enjoyed!
