Athens Authentic Marathon

Date & Location

Marathon, Greece

Organiser’s Description

For your running CV to be complete, every runner needs to run the route of the original Marathon run of the soldier Pheidippides, who in 490 AD ran from Marathon to Athens to bring news of the victory over the Persians at the Battle of Marathon. Over 2,500 years later, the Athens Marathon set the scene for marathons to enter the world of sport, and its very same course was used during the 2004 Olympics held in Athens. This wonderful city will welcome you with an array of splendid monuments and historical sights, finishing in the legendary stadium where the first Olympic games of the modern times in 1896 took place. 10k and 5k events also.
