The route starts at Achentrias. It starts off uphill for 2.5 km with continuous, quick changes in incline, which reaches 9% at certain points. Then there is a continuous, mainly flat stretch of well-trodden dirt, with quick turns that lead to an impressive opening at the 4th km affording a view of the Libyan Sea.

After 6.3 km the route goes down a hill, passing through the cobbled alleys of Ethia, before entering a speedy descent on asphalt, and then re-entering the dirt, leaving a small gorge behind on the left and passing through the village of Mournia.

The descent continues until the 15th km where you can choose to turn left for a technically demanding descent towards Treis Ekklisies, down a 6.4km stretch of an average incline of 7.2%, and a maximum incline of 11%. You can also choose to continue straight on until the right turn to Prinia, where the last uphill stretch of the route, 3.1km at a 4.8% incline, starts, before the fast descent to the finish line at Pyrgos.
