The road between the 2 Towers 595km in 100 days

The Virtual Challenge “The Road between the 2 Towers” is inspired by the history of our athletic club A.C. Pera.

The Club was established in 1923 in Istanbul in the area “Peran” and it is until now one of the two active Greek athletic clubs in the city. In 1977, Greeks from Constantinople  who moved in Thessaloniki founded the athletic club Pera Thessaloniki.

This challenge was inspired in remembrance of this course and the distance of the 595km is the distance between the two famous Towers, The Galata Tower (Galata Kulesi) in Istanbul and the White Tower in Thessaloniki.

Galata Tower was built in 1348 BC by the name “The Tower of Christ”   (Christea Turris) and has a height of 67m. Today it is one of the most important attractions in the area. The White Tower is the most famous symbol – building of Thessaloniki. It was built by the Ottomans in 1450 – 1470 BC replacing the Byzantine fortification. It has a height of 34m and today it functions as a museum.

This is the huge distance of the 595km that runners are called to run / walk today.
