More than 25,000 professional and amateur athletes are expected to participate in the Athens Half Marathon 2019, scheduled to be held on March 17 in the Greek capital.
Registrations are currently open on the event’s website here.
The “Runners’ Forest” project was initiated in November 2018, during the 36th “Athens Marathon. The Authentic” and aiming to support Attica’s areas that suffered extensive damages during last July’s wildfires. The initiative aims for the reforestation of the area between the 12th and 16th km of the classic marathon route in Mati.
The program is funded through the crowdfunding online platform of the National Bank of Greece, “Act4Greece”, which is open until February 28.
The Greek Travel Pages (GTP) is a media sponsor of the Athens Half Marathon 2019.
