Race Description

SEGAS, the Hellenic Athletics Federation, has the honour and the historic responsibility to organize annually the Athens Classic Marathon on the Original Marathon Course. Since 1982, the Athens Classic Marathon has been dedicated to Gregoris Lambrakis, the athlete, scientist and Member of Parliament, who was murdered in the 60s and, by his death, became a symbol of Human Rights.

From the year 2001 onwards, ALPHA BANK, the official bank of the Athens 2004 Olympic Games and one of the major banking corporations in Greece, has been nominated as the Grand Sponsor of the event and its valuable support led to the significant upgrade of the race in all aspects.

Thousands of runners from all over the world are expected to participate in this year’s race. Apart from the sporting experience, they will have the chance to enjoy the traditional Greek hospitality, discover the fascinating landscape of our country and explore a city which is constantly improving its standards.
