Running Activities
As you can expect, running on Crete is not like running in a forest. Running outside and not in a gym with air-condition means it is hot,dry,no shadow. The ground is mostly hard with small rocks. You have to be carefully where you put your feet. In my area where I am living in Crete ( nearby Iraklio ), it is also mostly uphill to go. There are also some nice small roads from village to village you can run.
The last years there are more and more good organized running events for everyone. There is the ADIDAS open run in the harbour of Iraklio called Koule. Mostly this event is in Oktober. There are also a lot of running events in Chania, Rethymno and other areas.

More running
The very nice run from Kavrochori to Keramoutsi and the way back. The distance is exactly 10 kilometers with extremely climbing the way to Keramoutsi. So if you like to run this route, be prepared for really big hills….
