What you'll do

If you are a runner or a trail runner or you want a walk in the mountain of Athens (Parnitha, Penteli, Hymettus) during your vacations I'm here for you. Mount Parnitha is a densely forested mountain range north of Athens, the highest on the peninsula of Attica, with an elevation of 1,413 m. Mount Penteli has an elevation of 1,109m and Mount Hymettus has an elevation of 1,026m. For those who are city runners we can run arount the Flisvos marine, Stavros Niarchos Foundation, Athens Riviera, Athens National Garden (the biggest green oasis in the center of Athens and we'll meet Evzones) and under Acropolis.
As an experienced ultra runner (in road and mountain) i will provide you tips and infos about both running and trail running. Together we will explore secret trails and if we are lucky we might see the wild animals of the mountain such as deers, foxes, wild goats, tortoise, lizards, snakes, eagles, falcons, etc. We can make stops and you will be able to take photos whenever you want.
Be prepared to be active, sweat, have a lot of fun and definitely have a memorable experience. This activity adds a wellness twist in your holidays and I will help you recharge both body and mind.

Hello, this is Billie. Together we 'll run into the city or the mountains. I was born in Chania (Crete) and I run the last 5 years. I work as an consultant but my passion is running. I run the Athens Marathon three times (best effort 3:41). The last 6 years I am also a trail runner. I also like the ultra races and I am dreaming to participate to Spartathlon sometme. Until now I have run to mount Olympus, Pindus, Taygetos, Lefka Ori, etc. So If you like running on any terrain, whatever your level is, then you find the best friend.

Had an excellent experience with Billie! He knew all the paths, and was a very experienced guide. We went to Parnitha mountain, and also to Mpafi refuge - both of which were highlights for me! Also saw some deer on the way, which I did not expect! Overall great experience and would highly recommend!

Trail running with Billie was really great, he showed me locations and paths which took me to really scenic views upon Athens. He is in addition very friendly, made sure the experience matched my expectations and even offered me self made energy bars (which were btw delicious). Everything was well planned, so it was a really great experience if you like to run! I’d recommend it.
