Patras is Greece’s third-largest city and the regional capital of Western Greece. The city’s scenic setting is at the foot of Mount Panachaikon, overlooking the Gulf of Patras (Wikipedia). It’s divided into a lower section (Kato Poli), with the urban core/port area and an upper section, which is the older part of the city around Patras Castle. The options for running in Patras center around the waterfront. Once you move inland, it’s quite hilly!
There are three principal running routes in Patras, which can be mixed & matched. We’ve mapped a 6.5 km route along the waterfront, about 1/2 of it on dedicated path, with nice views of Patras Bay. There’s also nice ‘runseeing’ tour, which includes the Castle area, Dasillio Park, and pedestrianized sections of central Patras. For those who don’t mind hills, the Park of Panachaidos hiking area offers scenic, hilly roads & paths.
Notes: Once you move inland, the area is hilly. Also note that Patras weather is very hot in summer. Use the right precautions!
