I've always wanted to visit the Sporades islands during the summer. The past weekend my dream came true! We decided to sail to Alonissos island and participate to "Alonissos challenge" running race (10Km, 30Km). The event is organized every year by the municipality of Alonissos in cooperation with Runner magazine. There's no better place for running than in the woods. The race was an ideal way to see the beauties of the island and enjoy the nature. I will definitely come back next year and that's a promise!

The island has a beautiful Chora (the old village) which is located 2km away from Patitiri port. It used to be the capital town of the island but now it's a place with wonderful architectural monuments such as the medieval castle and old churces. The view from Chora is breathtaking!

Chora has many taverns and cafes where you can enjoy the view to the Aegean sea.
