After three years at Lake Plastira, the XTERRA Greece Championship is changing location and moving to the Athenian Riviera and the Municipality of Vouliagmeni.
The swim will take place at the Gulf of Vouliagmeni, the area that hosted the triathlon venue during the Athens 2004 Olympic Games. During the bike and run course athletes will enjoy views of the Saronic Gulf and the surroundings of the picturesque peninsula.
A few kilometres outside of Athens, participants will find a place where the urban landscape gives way to a unique seaside resort. The Municipality of Vari-Voula-Vouliagmeni at the southern suburbs of the city, with its photogenic stretch of mountains, rocky coves, mineral lakes, seaside resorts and sandy beaches with blue-flag certified clean waters, is seen as the jewel of the Athenian Riviera.
“Combined with an ideal climate, it makes you feel as if you are on an endless summer holiday,” said Race Director Konstantinos Koumargialis.
“We are looking forward to welcoming the XTERRA Tribe in Athens for the 4th edition of the XTERRA Greece Championship.”
