Starting Friday, May 20 at 22.00,
registrations are open for the 7th edition of Rodopi Advendurun 100 miles
(ROUT) of 2016. Registrations will use the online registration form (http://www.rout.gr/index.php?name=Rout&file=registration&newlang=english ) and will last until July 31.
150 athletes will be admitted to the race
this year regardless of country of origin. Registration is a two-stage process,
first the application for participation is approved and then you are notified
to proceed with the fees payment. The payment period for those already
fulfilling the criteria and thus approved to participate will begin on May 20
and will last until the 150 places are filled up or until July 31, if there are
still openings. The organization will take special provisions to ensure a
minimum number of starters are athletes residing outside Greece.
The qualification criterion remains the
same as in previous years, finishing in an approved trail race of at least 80
km over the past 3 years (2014, 2015,2016 ).
The entry fee for this year's race will
remain EUROS 120,00. Race course, rules and regulations will published within
the forthcoming week (although there will be not substantial changes as of past
year (cut-off to 40 hours).
The Steering Committee of ROUT took care
to instill consistently until today the philosophy of a race not confined to
the narrow limits of an organized racing event but provides athletes with the
opportunity to experience an immersion to the pristine nature of Rodopi
mountains. Today, with the experience of six previous editions, adventure
transpires the Rodopi Advendurun and this spirit will prevail in all our future
Our best to all,
The ROUT Steering Committee
