Navarino Challenge strikes back on 11-13 October 2019

Breathtaking Messinian landscapes shaped by 4500 of fascinating history set the scene for Navarino Challenge – the highly acclaimed sports tourism event in Greece.

For the seventh year in a row, The Westin Resort Costa Navarino is hosting Navarino Challenge on the weekend 11-13 October 2019.

The elite of Greece’s sports, including Olympic Medalists, World Champions and Hall of Famers, will meet amateur sport fans of all ages to share unforgettable moments across over 30 sport and fitness activities – literally there something for everyone!

The multi-awarded event promotes athletic ethics and fair play, but continues to innovate; highlighting the “green” side of sports, Navarino Challenge aims to leave the smallest possible footprint and become the first sustainable sports event in Greece, with this year’s medal for all participants being made only of seaweed!

Participation is open.  All packages include accommodation, daily breakfast and dinner, free entry to the Cocktail party on Saturday, free participation in all Navarino Challenge activities taking place at the resort, but also a full series of special benefits across sports, Spa, dining and shopping facilities at the resort.
