A new trail running race is coming to Corfu!


8km and 18km on 11 February 2024

The path’s history


We are happy to announce the arrival of the Alogostrata Trail race! This new trail run follows the ancient trade trails that have been used by the mountain villagers to bring down their goods to the sea and Corfu town. The name arrives from the historic name of the final downhill of the run – the Alogostrata, Greek for 'horse road'.

The Alogostrata had been forgotten and overgrown since the 1930s. After an aborted attempt in 2016 to find and reopen it for trail running and hiking, in 2019 three friends took up on it again – and succeeded.

Since then, the Alogostrata is loved by trail runners and hikers as a demanding but beautiful connection up and down Pantokratoras. For the first time now, it will be part of a race.

Start and finish of the Alogostrata Trail will be the new village of Agios Markos. There will be a 7km race and 18km race – both having the amazing Alogostrata path as a final speedy downhill.

The races


Speed Trail 8km

The race is short in kilometers but quite demanding with the Liskia path as almost vertical uphill. Once up, it goes for a nice loop around the lake of Spartilas passing the abandoned church Agios Nikolaos and heads towards the Alogostrata for a speedy downhill with amazing views.

Moulari Trail 18km

This race for the first time combines some of the favorite trail pieces of the local trail runners: Liskia, the Orchidea trail behind Spartilas' lake, the enchanted path along Zigos creek towards Sokraki, the hunters' path and the speedy Alogostrata downhill.
