The Authentic Athens Marathon!

November 2015


As every year, the “Authentic” Marathon road race is organized this November in Athens for one more time.

Athens, the birthplace of the Marathon race, will be the focus of attention for the international running scene for three days from November 6 to 8.

For the 33rd time, Athen’s “The Authentic” Marathon is ready to welcome more than 35,000 runners of all ages with 15,000 of them running the entire Authentic Marathon Course. Known as The Classic Marathon; a celebration of human will and mind, of solidarity and primary values, bearing messages for a better future at personal, community, national and international level.

The marathon course is based on the myth from which the race gained its name; Pheidippides, a messenger in Ancient Greece, ran from the Battle of Marathon to Athens to announce the Greeks’ victory over the Persians.

The provenance of the competitive race is traced back to the Marathon race at the 1896 Olympics.

The Athens Classic Marathon began in 1972 as a joint venture between the Greek tourist board and athletics association. The race came under the auspices of the current organizers and SEGAS in 1983 and has since become a major race, being awarded Gold “Label Road Race” status by the IAAF.

Participating in this unique event is an exceptional lifetime experience and a unique opportunity to race in the center of culture and sports.
