Athens Marathon on Sunday

The Athens Marathon is like no other on Earth. According to legend, it covers the same ground that the Athenian messenger Phiedippides ran when he brought news of victory from the battlefield of Marathon almost 2,500 years ago. When you run the Athens Marathon, you run in the very footsteps of the ancient gods and heros that gave birth to western civilization. The finish line is in Athens’ magnificent Olympic Stadium, the birthplace of the modern Olympic Games. Those who run the Athens Marathon say it is an experience they’ll never forget.

The Athens Marathon is recognized as the original marathon course and it was the same course used in the 2004 Olympics held in Athens.

So right now the hostel is filled with guest from Colombia, all ready to run the marathon on Sunday. We wish them all good luck!
