The Event of Nafplio Castle Run is part of the city’s celebrations for its liberation.
During Athens Authentic Marathon opening ceremony, a delegation of the Organizing Committee of Nafplio Castle Run & Nafplio Marathon, received the Marathon Flame.
The Marathon Flame traveled to Nafplio where with an exquisite Torch Relay on the eve of the race, climbs step by step on Nafplio Castle in order to light the altar and thus marking the opening of Nafplio Castle Run Event!
The course of the Torchbearers starts at 16:30 from FOUGARO, thereafter passing through spots of symbolic meaning: the CAMP KEMX, the Bavarian Lion, the Nafplion Hospital, torchbearers reach at the statue of Staikopoulos and with the sun set at 17:15 the Torchbearers start climbing to the Castle from the entrance on the 25th of March street.
When the last torchbearer reaches the peak of the Castle at 17:45, the altar lights on, the Castle lights turn off and the latten candles are left to the sky from the coastal front of the city in front of Filellinon Square
