The Athens Classic Marathon is one of the most historic and prestigious marathons in the world. It is held annually in Athens, Greece, and commemorates the legendary run of the soldier Pheidippides, who is said to have run from the Battle of Marathon to Athens to deliver the news of victory over the Persians in 490 BC.

The race covers a distance of 42.195 kilometers, starting in the town of Marathon and finishing at the Panathenaic Stadium in Athens, which was the site of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. The course follows the same route as Pheidippides, passing through the beautiful Greek countryside and finishing with a lap of the historic stadium.

The Athens Classic Marathon attracts thousands of runners from all over the world every year and is known for its challenging course and historic significance. It is a truly unique and unforgettable experience for anyone who loves running or history.
