The Hellenic Mountaineering Association of Acharnes (EOS) was founded in 1976, by nature lovers of the city of Acharnes due to the proximity of the place to Parnitha. Its first president, Nontas Nikas, was the one who pioneered a little later in the creation of the Historical and Folklore Society of Acharnes (ILEA). For this reason, the two clubs are inextricably linked to each other to this day.

From the first days of his life, E.OS. started publishing his news in a short-page bulletin, which has now been turned into a popular magazine, "Korfes". Then, on the initiative of the Mountaineering Association and the voluntary work of its members, a mountain refuge was built in Parnitha, consisting of two buildings known as "Flampouri" and "Vassilis Nikas", which operate to this day. In the late 1990s, on its own initiative, the five-storey building was built, which still houses its offices. In the facilities of the same building is the first Association, indoor mountaineering track of Greece, but also a small outdoor ski slope with dry carpet, for the training of its nursery
Skiing.

The Association organizes mountaineering excursions in the mountains of Greece and abroad and participates in competitions, cultivates various sports such as mountaineering, climbing, skiing, mountain skiing, chess, judo and cycling. Organizes exchange programs with climbers from abroad, while at the same time
offers a host of other activities, even for the parents of young athletes, such as seminars and lectures.

Finally, the association has developed significant ecological action. Through its activities, it aims to cultivate the ecological consciousness of people, especially the younger generation, by participating voluntarily in programs
schools of Attica, accompanying groups of students on their mountain climbs, believing that as many young people as possible should get to know the mountainous nature with its gorges, high peaks, rivers, flora and fauna. Because in the end, "how can one care for a place and protect it if one has never walked in it !!!".

Every year, for 37 years, on the last Sunday of September, he holds a popular street race with free participation, in the Holy Trinity of Parnitha, the so-called "Round of Parnitha". This year, instead of the established Round and because of the special ones
conditions prevailing, as a symbolic movement the Mountaineering Association of Acharnes in collaboration with the Historical and Folklore Society of Acharnes, EISPINIO, the movement "Citizens of Acharnes" and with the support of the Municipality of Acharnes, in an effort to contribute to the protection of After the huge ecological catastrophe caused by the recent fires in Attica, he decided to clean the road leading to Parnitha.

This action will take place on Sunday, September 26 from 9.00 in the morning, with a group of volunteers who willingly and happily came to his call. The action will start after the last taverns of Parnitha.
