The 34th “Athens Marathon. The Authentic” made and marked history on Sunday, November 13, attracting thousands of athletes from across the globe to run the classic race from the seaside town of Marathon to the Greek capital.
In a month’s time amateur and professional athletes from across the globe will be running the footpaths of the Cycladic island of Andros in one of the island’s biggest sporting events, the 1st Andros Trail Race to take place on October 2.
The Andros Trail Race is about lots of determination and love for nature. The Cycladic island’s first mountain running event takes place on October 2 and organizers are calling on amateur and professional athletes to register.
Basketball and sports can go a long way towards the promotion of Greece as a leading holiday destination, Alternate Tourism Minister Elena Kountoura said during the 1st AegeanBall Festival 2016 held earlier this month on the Cycladic island of Syros.
In efforts to inspire and motivate youngsters to take up sport, authorities from Syros, the capital of the Cyclades, proudly announce the launch of the 1st TRIMORE Triathlon, to take place on June 10-12.
The Antetokounmpo brothers got the Cretan town of Heraklion on their toes shooting hoops last weekend when the two ultra athletes - Giannis and Thanasis - participated in a sports event organized by the Region of Crete and the Heraklion municipality.
It’s the most festive run of the year with hundreds of professional and amateur athletes, young and old, donning their Santa gear and heading out for the 2nd Athens Santa Run to take place on Sunday, November 29… and all this for a good cause.
