Runners Take The Original Route In Athens Marathon

Why โ€“ Athens is where it all started. The course for this marathon is across the same route that Pheidippides, the messenger took 2500 years ago. As per legend, he ran 42.12 km to deliver the news of the victory of Athens in the battle of Marathon.

You can give your tribute to Pheidippides by participating in this marathon. The course goes downhill in some parts and uphill in other parts. The runners finish the race in the historical Panathenaic stadium, the birthplace of the modern Olympic Games.
