FROZEN PEAKS ULTRA TRAIL

Frozen Peaks is an event that includes 4 trail running races of different distances, 263K, 103K, 46K, 15K, which take place in the municipality of Kato Nevrokopi in Drama Greece. Kato Neurokopi is located at an altitude of 600m and has a cold and continental mountain climate, and a very particular and suggestive landscape that you would not expect to find. The best way to get there is to fly to Thessaloniki which is just under 2 hours away.

The area has several interesting areas to visit: the traditional settlement in the village of Granitis, the historic bunker of Lisse, the artificial lakes of Lefkogeia and PotamoĆ­, the ancient churches, the spectacular paths in the woods.

 

 

The longest race is called PANORAMA, it is an ultramarathon with a distance of 263K (6 Itra Points), which consists of 3 circular routes of about 90 km with start and finish in Nevrokopi. The 103K (4 Points Itra), HIGHLAND, has instead a path equivalent to a circular loop, this allows you to experience the best of the region, passing from the high mountains, to the enchanted woods and then back to Nevrokopi. The event is completed by the two shortest races, the 46K HEROES (2 Itra Points) and the 15K LISSE.
