ATHENS MARATHON. THE AUTHENTIC.
The "Authentic Athens Marathon” will still go ahead this autumn albeit in a slightly different form to normal.
In the light of the economic challenges facing the country and its people, the Hellenic Athletics Federation (SEGAS) has decided to forego inviting an elite field in the marathon in order to concentrate on a race for mass runners, including the 5km and 10 km road races which complete the day’s programme. Parts of the money saved will be used to further improve services and entertainment for the mass runners.
A record number of 16,000-plus runners are expected to take to the classic course from the town of Marathon to the 1896 Olympic Stadium in the heart of Athens which was the route used for the 1997 World Championships and 2004 Olympic Games.
In total 43,000 runners are expected to take part in all the running events on offer.
With this gesture, the organisers invite runners from around the world to run the Athens Marathon in solidarity with the Greek people at this testing time.
