Share the road that led king Leonidas and His 300 to their EPIC GLORY!
In accordance with the data we have in hand for the time being, most of the athletes expressed their interest to hike the entire distance (Sparta – Thermopylae) instead of participating in a competitive race.
After that we decided to reschedule the original program and change the character from race to march. So:
- The event “300 of Sparta” will finally be executed as a “March” (hiking) instead of a competitive race.
- Every night at the end of each ETAPE, all athletes will be accommodated in hotels on the axis of the route, or nearby, instead of in camps. In the hotels, athletes will share one room (double room occupancy), with a co-athlete. Single occupancy can be arranged upon request with a surcharge.
The rest of the program remains as originally scheduled, as well as the fee involved.
Please consider the above two amendments and in case you have no objection you can proceed with registration following the steps provided on the site.
We are sorry for the inconvenience we might have caused you, but these things happen at the launch of innovative and difficult events like “The 300 of Sparta”.
We trust, you will join us in this important athletic event in terms of physical effort and historical significance.
