Nondik gertu Valtesiníkon, Peloponnese (Greece)

Mountain halfmarathon race in village Valtesiniko in Arkadia. It is organized by charity organization "Φλογα" and all income from sing fees goes to the charity itself.

Route was a loop around hills of Arkadia, starting and finishing in village of Valtesiniko, about 1050m altitude. The race was a fast one, 99% of the route was runnable, without big-grade climbs nor downhills. The biggest problem of the day was the heat, with the race starting fairly late in the day, at 10:30 and finishing around noon. Luckly enough, about 3/4 of the route passed through quite dense forest offering shadow and cooler temps. Only first and last kilometers (around the village) were exposed and difficult in terms of heat.

I managed to finish 2nd overall (and in my age category) with time 1:52'40", which is pretty awesome! I havent been running much lately (not in the mountains nor beyond 12-14km distances) so it feels even more awesome :-D
