Corfu Mountain Trail
The Corfu Mountain Trail team has been organizing international sporting events (Corfu Mountain Trail, Corfu Old Town Trail, Greek X Hero xtri) on its beautiful island for over 10 years, highlighting nature, tradition, and historical monuments.
Taking part in any of the events the athletes get to know all the enchanting places of the entire island including the Achilleion Palace where the James Bond movie “For Your Eyes Only” was filmed, up to the old olive groves that inspired the author Gerald Durrel to write the world famous book “ My Family and Other Animals” which as a TV series was filmed completely on Corfu island.
The Corfu Mountain Trail is a running event, which passes 25 traditional villages through 200 years old trails under the olive groves planted by the Venetians that were the only way of communication between the communities at that time. Runs through the village of Old Perithia, one of the 50 most unexplored parts of the world according to National Geographic and passes the mystical hermitage with the olive mill with its huge stones. The routes were designed to show the athletes the rich Mediterranean vegetation, the mountaintops surrounded by the endless turquoise water from both the Ionian and the Adriatic Sea, the most beautiful beaches, as well as the traditional villages that turn us back in time 100 years before.
