The European Championship of Beach Taekwondo will also be held at Rhodes!

Rhodes has evolved in recent years with the support of the Region of South Aegean as a destination that hosts major sporting events. Let us add here the June 2017 first edition of the European Championship Beach Taekwondo (Poomsae)! The exact date of the event will be known in the coming months by the European Federation of Taekwondo (ETU).

This is a sporting event with the aim to “inspire youth” through water sports and offer entertainment. Rhodes with its amazing beaches and ideal weather conditions is an ideal destination for the organization of the European Championship Beach Taekwondo. Once again, the island of the Knights will be found in the interest of European sporting interest!

The premiere of the major sporting Events will take place in 2017 along with the 4th International Marathon of Rhodes, which will take place on 9 April. The great organization included in the official calendar of Athletics Federation and the AIMS and is one of the few certified marathons in Greece. In 2016 the  entries of athletes in the marathon, the races 5 and 10 km, reached the 1500 doubling its holdings of 2015. There was no participation from Brazil, Japan, the US and apparently from various European cities. As athletes around the world are looking for new destinations and new certified races, Rhodes became a rising destination for marathon runners.

Over from the International Marathon Rhodes will take 20-23 April World Cup Cycling Amateur «UCI Gran Fondo Rhodes Tour» to be held for the second time in Rhodes. But this time they will still be two races bearing the stamp of the International Cycling Federation (UCI). Specifically, on March 5, 2017 will be held International Rhodes Grand Prix 1.2 UCI and 10-12 March International Rhodes Tour 2.2 UCI. Last, but not least important event is race triathlon Olympic distance called «Ocean Lava Rhodes» scheduled to take place on October 30, 2017.

The Region of South Aegean Islands  is co-organizing the races, which will take place mainly in the low and high season, in order to extend the time duration and extension of sports tourism that is an internationally rising trend.
