There’s always a first time for everything! For one day the Town of Rethymno put on its roller-blades and zoomed across its streets, bringing news of fun and sportsmanship to its residents (but mostly fun).
For the first time in Greece, a half-marathon for inline skating was organized, in Rethymno, drawing the attention of international athletes and locals for this speedy sport! With an aim to make In line Skating a familiar sport to Greeks, the Municipal of Rethymno motivated locals to involve in the athletic activity, regardless of their age.
In parallel with the half marathon, a children’s race and a 6km race for adults were held, calling all Greeks to try this sport and share the fun! People of all ages turned out at this new sporting event, with joy and laughter, as well as determination and will!
The winners of the half marathon were awarded medals and celebrated with everybody else until the early hours of next day at the party the municipality of Rethymno through, for this event! Till next year!
