pureTrail Guides and Race Directors - Mark and Steve

The Mani Peninsula is the undiscovered mountainous ‘middle finger’ of the Peleponnese, in Southern Greece. This will be our 3rd visit. Please refer to our Facebook page and webpage to view photographs from previous trips.

The Taygetus Mountains run down the spine of the Mani and rise to a height of 2407 metres to form a spectacular panoramic backdrop to our adventures here. The highest peak – ‘Profitis Ilias’ is often snow-capped in Spring and late Summer and is visible from all directions and from our base on the coast. 

Deep river gorges cascade precipitously down from the high peaks and form the natural access routes into the hills. The myriad of mule tracks and goat trails reach tentatively upward through the olive groves from Kardamyli, a small town at the foot of the mountains on the crystalline shores of the Ionian Sea. 

Kardamyli has been chosen as the base for our Mani Adventures. It is part of the Messinian Mani, the northern section of the peninsula, less than an hour’s drive from Kalamata, our destination airport. It is a small, friendly, relaxed and typically Greek town with an ambience of tranquillity, balanced perfectly between the mountains, gorges, olive groves and blue waters of the Ionian.  

It is an idyllic place to run, hike, mountain bike and generally hang-out and chill-out for a while. 

What you Receive:-

Transfers to and from Kalamata Airport 

7 nights Hotel accommodation with breakfast or Self Catering accommodation

5 guided runs/hikes

pureTrail technical t-shirt

pureTrail multi-functional headwear

Flights can be booked from Gatwick or Manchester to Kalamata, using Easyjet. The flight takes approximately 3 1/2 hours and are scheduled to leave early in the morning. Flights are to be arranged separately by the entrant.

Luxury shuttle transfers to and from our base in Kardamyli (transfer time approximately 1 hour) are included.

As we approach the town, from high above to the North, we see the terracotta red rooves in a sea of grey-green olive trees to one side and the turquoise waters of the Ionian Sea on the other. With the gorges running down viscerally to the shore, it’s a dramatic first impression. 

Kardamyli has a such an ambient vibe, very low-key and laid back. October is warm, the sea is at its warmest for swimming and the late summer light is mellow in the afternoons and evenings. Daytime temperatures average 24-25 degrees, still quite warm, so our runs are tailored to make the most of the afternoons for relaxing and soaking up the rays. 

Yoga or Bike hire can be arranged for your Restday (Saturday) and can be reserved for £10 in the SiEntries entry process.
