Australian Humerloc Douglas crossed the finish line first in the 4th Annual Crete Half Marathon which took place in Arkalochori this weekend.
A Siberian runner bests a throng of competitors to reach the summit (2,456 meters) of Crete’s tallest peak, Psilopritis Mountain (Mt. Ida). In a race event spanning two days, runners from 20 nations competed in a variety of events in celebration of Crete, Minoan, and Greek traditions. The call to “Run in the footsteps of Zeus” was answered by Russian Dmitrii Usharov and many others at the 9th annual Psiloritis Race on Crete.
Coming up June 3rd, the International Mountain Race Psiloritis will challenge the world’s mountain racers to run in the footsteps of mighty Zeus. An event envisioned back in 2008 for Mt. Olympus, Race Psiloritis is now an “one of” international runner’s experience.
