The night before the races, on Friday, the Pasta Party is organized for the athletes that are going to take part in the running races of HALFMARATHON and TINOS FUN RUN 10km and 5km as well as their companion. This party is taking place in a different village of the island every year. In 2014 it was held in the village Steni, in 2015 in the village Agapi, in 2016 in Komi and in 2017 in Falatados.
The associations of the villages, with the valuable help of its residents, and especially of the women take over to cook traditional recipes with local products based on the athletes’ needs. They also offer plenty of local wine, raki and live traditional music, giving the opportunity to the athletes and their companion to discover the villages, the gastronomy, the joy and the hospitality of the island and its residents.
In 2018 the Pasta Party is going to take place in the village Kechros. This village is in the northeast side of the island and is built on the foothills of Kechrovouni. After Monastiri, the holy convent, the road goes on to the north in a place with rare vegetation with fig and cherry trees and basically bushes with a panoramic view to the west of the island. On your right- 1km after the convent of Kechrovouni- a side road of some hundred meters leads you to the village Kechros, a small clean village with a church of Virgin Mary, nice decorations and a pebbled churchyard.
The transportation of the athletes and their companion from the town to the PASTA PARTY is free from the Organizers.
