Ioannina Lake Run: The whole world in Ioannina, the gem city of Epirus!

Ioannina Lake Run: Όλος ο κόσμος, στο διαμάντι των Ιωαννίνων!

Lake Pamvotis is again at the center of the international road races!

The tour of Lake Ioannina is a fascinating route and a top running route as well that has become an institution for the city of Ioannina and Epirus, with a successful track record of 16 years. Ioannina Lake Run stands out as a race, focusing on athletes with Lake Pamvotis in the background. A flat 30km race and two shorter runs of 5km and 10km against a setting of breathtaking beauty.

This year, participations exceeded all expectations. On the starting line everybody was most eager to take part while expressing their determination to compete, highlighting the importance of the event and how they have missed short runs due to the restrictive measures.

Families with children in the Family Run, elementary school children in the Kids race, parents with infants and toddlers in the original "Mama-stroller" route, as well as the 1km lakeside road for people with disabilities created a unique ambiance of sportsmanship, teamwork and emotionally moved all those attending the two-day events.

As every year, the volunteers proved to be a very strong asset. Full of energy, dedication, and zeal for this international event they organized various parallel racing, cultural and entertainment activities.
