Though this route is strenuous, it makes for scenic running. There will be a few climbs in the earlier part of the route, but after mile 11, it's mostly downhill (with a few exceptions!).
Οικοτουριστική Διαδρομή Ήλιδας - Ολυμπίας "Το Μονοπάτι της Εκεχειρίας" / Eco-Touristic Route from Ilis - Olympia following "The Route of Truce".
Starting from Ancient Ilis, the “Route of Truce” crosses 13 semi-hilly villages of the Ilia Prefecture and Municipalities, Ilis (Dafni, Keramidia, Dafniotissa, Peristeri), Pyrgos (Chimadio, Sopi, Karatoulas, Magoula, Latzoi), Ancient Olympia (Iraklia, Pournari, Pelopio, Platanos), and ends in Ancient Olympia.
Through the “Route of Truce”, the visitors run along a route full of olive trees, vines, pomegranates, and herbs. Along the way, visitors will also be able to visit the towns of Ιlis and Olympia and learn more about the culture and the history of the area.
Through this project, we wish to raise awareness of the “Route of Truce,” inland Greece, and abroad in order to
encourage tourism within the Elis hinterland.
