29th Athens Classic Marathon

Athens Classic Marathon will be held on the 13th of November for the 29th consecutive time.

This year’s Marathon is dedicated once more to the memory of the great scientist and politician Gregory Lambrakis, a symbol of democracy and social justice. Lambrakis was actively involved in the Pacifist Movement of his time, which organised in 1963 the First Pacifist Rally from Marathon to Athens.
The Marathon, one of the most popular sports among sport lovers, is a unique running-event of great historical importance.
The marathon race has its roots in this great battle that influenced significantly Greek and world history alike, the Battle of Marathon in 490 BC.
The Marathon idea was inspired by the legend of Pheidippides, a professional runner-soldier; the legend states that he delivered the message of the Greek victory over the Persians.
