It’s a great opportunity for runners to test their physical condition for the next Athens Marathon, The Authentic, as well as the most appropriate way of highlighting the historical and tourist points of the city, in early spring.
The Half Marathon Race will be held in parallel to a 5km and a 3km Road Race as well as a 1000m Race especially designed for people with disabilities and Special Olympics athletes.
The decision for the Athens Half Marathon date transfer in early spring was made considering the runners’ community consistent request and the prevailing weather conditions, in an effort to further upgrade of the event. Meanwhile, in the final decision of SEGAS counted the requests from abroad – mainly from Europe and America – to carry the race in March as well. Due to the great fullness of Athens relevant facilities on May, it will be much more possible for the runners from abroad to visit Greece in March.
The transfer of the Athens Half Marathon, the most important sport event of the city, after the Athens Marathon, The Authentic, in early spring marks the beginning of the “running period” in Greece, and aims to enable an even greater number of runners to experience a sport celebration in downtown Athens.
