Olympians Athletic Club and Dolicho Organising Committee invite you to the 3rd DOLICHO (DELPHI – ANCIENT OLYMPIA) ULTRA RACE which will be held on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th May 2014.
The race is 255 Km long with 48 hours time limit. The route includes 60% dirt roads, forest roads and foot paths and 40% asphalt roads, linking Central Greece to Peloponnese through Rio-Antirrio bridge. The mountainous part of the route reaches a 1.100 m altitude with a total positive ascent of +4,500 m and a total negative descent of –5,100 m.
For this purpose, friends-members of the national / international running community who believe they can come up to this extreme mental and physical challenge are invited to join the race and witness the wonderful feelings generated throughout this endurance event; feelings that only few runners can experience, few but EXCELLENT judging from the 10 international athletes in total who managed to cross the finish line of this race until now.
Applications are open since September 1st 2013 and will close on March 31th 2014.

Dolicho Organising Committee
PS Olympians Athletic Club and Dolicho Organising Committee are private non-profit entities which have never received up to now any public (local authority / national government, EU structural funds/ initiatives) or private funding (sponsors) except the partial catering at the check-points plus sports companies running gear put on draw after the race. All expenses are covered by participants fees, voluntary work and self-covered expenses of members of the Dolicho Organising Committee. We strongly believe that any public money surplus, even the tiniest, should be channeled to the unemployed and people who suffer from the worst economic crisis striking Greece since World War 2.
