FROZEN PEAKS - COLD TOPS

The northwestern part of the Prefecture of Drama and specifically the wider area of the Municipality of Nevrokopi is characterized as the coldest part of Greece due to its geographical position, with very low temperatures in the winter. The highest mountain peaks of the region, Tsolia at Orvilos 2212 m and Prophet Elias in Falakro 2232 m are in the same place, where even in the summer the chill is noticeable.

The name FROZEN PEAKS was given for this very reason in the new Mountain Trail Races, because of the fact that it will just be carried out in an area characterized by the cold climate and scenic peaks of the surrounding mountains.
This new event aspires to highlight the area of Nevrokopi Municipality both in Greece and abroad and to contribute to the development of sport tourism. The region, besides the unique agricultural products (potato, beans), livestock, logging and marble businesses, has rich history and historical monuments, folklore and traditions, war museum, picturesque churches, traditional settlements, points of rare natural beauty, rich flora and fauna, artificial lakes and a ski resort.
The routes of the Races aim to reveal all the above elements: the military forts of the Metaxas line, which the Germans could not subdue in 1940, the old military facilities, the outposts and the military paths, the Greek-Bulgarian border, the places of rare beauty, the artificial lakes, the highest peaks of the mountains, the ski slopes of the Falakro ski center, the villages, the traditional settlements and the picturesque churches of the area, the farmhouses and the quarry facilities.
The FROZEN PEAKS Trail Races includes a range of mountain races , consisted of 10, 40, 80 and 240 km in the Nevrokopi region (24-27/5/2018).
