On the weekend 2/3 of September 2017, Serifos Sunset Race will take place for the 5th consecutive year in the island of Serifos with running races of 5, 10 and 20km, swimming races 1.000 and 3.000m, but also running and swimming races of shorter distances for kids. The purpose of Serifos Sunset Race is to become an established race, matching the standards of similar events in Greece and abroad, with athletic, social and cultural interest, especially in an island and during periods of lower touristic traffic. Serifos Sunset Race supports the efforts of the equivalent access in education, health, culture and sports for all residents of the Greek islands, especially the islands of the non-profit line.
What makes Serifos Sunset Race unique is that it takes off during the sunset hour. With starting point on the main island road that hovers above the beautiful Vagia beach, a beach tucked between the characteristic rocky slopes of the Cyclades and ending right on one of the best beaches on the island.
Running under a beautiful sky that morphs into a blaze of gold and orange by the time the sun is setting down. As runners dashed to the end, at Vagia, the beach party is starting, with snacks, refreshments, good music, happy crowds and a great view.
