Corfu Old town Trail 2022

RACE ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE 9th “CORFU OLD TOWN TRAIL” The 8th “CORFU OLD TOWN TRAIL” will be held on Saturday, on the 24th of September 2022 organized by the cooperation of the Municipality of Central Corfu and the Corfu Mountain Trail Organising Team. THE CORFU OLD TOWN TRAIL is a city trail that takes place every year at the end of the tourist season (September-October) at a distance of 14km and 7km, passing through both fortresses of Corfu, as well as the two palaces (Asian Art and Mon Repo). The route of the 14 km race starts at the Liston square continuous through the square of St. Spyridonas, crossing Nikiforou Theotoki Street and leads us to the hill of the new Fortress, continuing inside the fortified part of the old city. It passes the Jewish quarter heading towards the City Hall (San Giacomo), the Duomo (Catholic church), and the historic neighbourhood of Porta Remounda with its many cantons. The route continues in Paleopolis (Mon Repo), where the worship centre of ancient Corfu is located, as well as the old villa of the English commissioner (Frederick Adams) granted to King George I. later and now a museum. It returns on the wide sea-side walk of the bay of Garitsa and run through the Old Fortress, the Venetian masterpiece. The route continues through the Garden of the People, in front of the Palace (Asian Museum), and enters in the labyrinthine streets of Corfu Old Town (UNESCO World Heritage). The finish line is in the famous Liston, a trademark of the historic city center. The 6 km route starts together with the 14 km route until Porta Remunda but it turns to the left there to enter the Old Fortress without going to Paleopoli and Garitsa bay, and follows the last part of the 14 km route to finish in Liston square as well. There will be local traditional surprises in 20 different spots of the route with a lot of fun, music, Corfiot tradition and culture. About 200 athletes participate each year since the first event in 2014.
