Schiniathlon: Multisport in Greece

Multisport is a family of athletic competitions in which athletes race in a continuous series of stages or “legs,” and rapidly switch from one discipline to another in order to achieve the best overall time. Most multisport events are endurance races, consisting of aerobic activities such as cycling, running, kayaking and cross-country skiing. Greece happens to be the ultimate ideal environment for the practice of such a sport. Schiniathlon (www.schiniathlon.gr), Greece’s main multisport events, are settled in a cycle of three events per year: Spring – Autumn – Winter. The next Winter Schiniathlon will take place on  January 25th, 2009 with more fun and challenges for all of you! The event takes place at Schinias bay, Marathonas area, near Athens.
