The races, which will include parallel cultural events and happenings, will run through the city’s picturesque center and across town, below the Venetian fortress of Palamidi and opposite the Bourtzi on the islet of Agioi Theodori.
Organizers invite all runners to register now through the Nafplio Marathon website through to February 24 or at the registration centre (Nafplio Indoor Gymnasium) before the event on March 4-5.
The 3rd Nafplio Marathon is jointly organized by the municipality, the Argolida Regional Division, the Hellenic Athletics Federation (SEGAS) Peloponnese unit, the Marathon Runners of Argolida, and the Center for Hellenic Studies, Harvard University.
