REVIVAL OF AN HISTORICAL ROUTE
Every year, in Viotia, an important event takes place, called “the revival of the Feat of Efhidas”. According to the historical reports, after the victory of the Greeks in Plataea, against the Persians, the people of Plataea asked from Efhidas to go to Delphi and bring back the purified fire from the holy of Apollo. Efhidas ran to Delphi and returned to Plataea in about 24 hours, covering globally a distance of a thousand stages. However, as soon as he delivered the holy fire, he died. The revival of the Feat of Efhidas is organizing, in the beginning of each summer, by the Greek Group of Sports "Efhidas". The modern route, of a length of 107,5 km, begins from Plataea, goes through Kaparelli, Lefktra, Xironomi, Aghia Anna, Kyriaki, Stiri, Distomo and Arahova and ends in Delphi. Its duration is 14 hours. We suggest you to try to follow this famous route. However, if you cannot participate, you can go to Delphi, where, after the completion of the Feat, a big feast takes place with music, dance groups and traditional foods.
