Information on Timing Services for those participating in the Half Marathon, as well as the 5km and 3km Road Races


An official timing company has undertaken the Timing of the Athens Half Marathon event. The same company is also responsible to issue the Official Results of the event after its conclusion.

In order to have your name registered in the Official Results of the event and be informed about your finish and split times during the race, all runners need to:

- Bear the timing chip to be given by the Organizing Committee, following the instructions of the organizers, throughout the race – Please note that the timing chip is attached on the back side of the runner’s bib number.

- Cross all timing mats at the start, the finish and the split timing control zones (if any).

The Athens Half Marathon is an event co-organized yearly by the Hellenic Athletics Federation (SEGAS) and the City of Athens. The Athens Half Marathon was organized for the first time in 2012 (with about 3,500 runners at that time) and this year it will be held for sixth time on 19 March 2017 with more than 20,000 participants.
