DO YOU CANCEL IF IT RAINS?
No we do not cancel our tours if it rains, snows etc. The only instance where we would cancel a tour is if we would have storm or a heavy thunderstorm. If this happens we will let participants know in advance either via email or phone. It is however, very rare that conditions are so so bad that we have to cancel, so if you are in doubt, expect to run.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
In Greece we have mild winters and warm summers, so weather conditions do not vary significantly. But it is always a good idea to check the weather conditions before travelling to Athens, so that you know what temperatures to expect.
During the colder months we always recommend people to wear long sleeves as we have short stops along the run, in order to take photos and for the guide to talk about the attractions.
In summer you can easily just wear a t-shirt and a pair of shorts/tights. It is, however, very important to remember sunscreen (at least SPF 30/50), so that sun burn is avoided. A hat can also be very handy in summertime in general.
IS THERE WATER ON THE TOUR?
Water is not included so we always recommend our guests to bring their own water on a warm day. There are a few public water fountains along the way, so if you are in need of a sip of water, simply ask the guide to point out a drinking spot.
HOW FAST DO YOU RUN ON THE TOURS, DO I HAVE TO BE AN ELITE RUNNER TO PARTICIPATE?
The running pace is set on our private tours by you. Durnig our goup tour we run a pace of about 6:00min/km.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO STORE BAGS AND CLOTHES AT THE PLACE WE START?
Unfortunately there is no storage for bags. Please, travel light.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO TAKE PICTURES ALONG THE WAY?
Yes, you can bring your camera and snap away. The running guide will also take pictures along the route, and if there is a certain place you would like your picture taken, then simply ask your guide. The pictures will be send to you after the tour via email.
