Greek Hero XTRI

Greek Hero is an extreme triathlon for athletes who want to exceed their limits. The weather in April on Corfu can be quite unpredictable and the unique topography of the island makes the race extremely challenging. Temperatures may range from 0 to 32 degrees Celsius on race day.

It begins with a 4 km swim in the Ionian Sea (water temperature approx. 14-17 degrees Celsius). The bike leg (3300 m D+, 182 km) takes the athletes all around the island of Corfu with breathtaking views. The run (40 km, 1900 D+) follows a beautiful route passing olive gardens and beaches finishing on the top of the Angel Castle.

Impressions

I just enjoy doing the race so much! I’m the most happy when I’m 2-3 hours into the cycle. Then I am just so happy! I'm always singing out loud and I ruin my race, because I push too hard.

Hårek Stranheim, NO

I enjoy most the whole journey, which has its long festive day, where I can push myself a bit further with my team and all of this in astonishing surroundings.

Mikko Lehmuskoski, FI

Surroundings, friendship between teams and your team pushing you forward. Awesome feeling.

That an xtri is not only with you on race day but from the moment you have an inkling it might be for you and then for the rest of the day. And I loved the soup on Gaustatoppen.
