Experience

In 490 BC Pheidippides ran from Marathon to Athens to announce the Athenian victory over the invading Persians. And this race allows you to run in his footsteps. The Athens Marathon, the Authentic Marathon, is not just a sporting event, a hard race, a tough course of 42,195m. There is also a 10K that starts outside the stadium and a 5K. All of the races finish inside the stadium.
