ATTENTION: THIS ARTICLE REFERS TO ATHENS AUTHENTIC MARATHON (NOVEMBER 2015)

SEGAS, the Hellenic Athletics Federation and Organizer of the “ATHENS MARATHON. THE AUTHENITC” is pleased to announce that registrations for the 10km & 5km Road Races will open on April 1st, and invites everyone interested to participate to submit his/her registration in time, as due to the great popularity of these two races the maximum participation limit is expected to be met within a few hours if not in less!.

On this occasion, we would like to thank the runners that are showing their interest in the races of the ATHENS MARATHON and to underline the fact that SEGAS is handling the huge demand for participation (three, not to say four, times bigger than what the safety limits in each race allow) with high responsibility and setting as primary criteria the protection, safety and satisfaction of the runners.

Unfortunately, we are not able to satisfy this enormous demand for participation in the 5km and 10km Road Races.

The safety requirements, the incumbent provision of high level services to the runners, the regularity of the city center as well as the access and infrastructure limitations of the Panathinaikon Stadium, have led us to the identification of 9,000 entries as the maximum registration limit for each one of these races.

We have rejected any thought to increase this limit against safety and quality. SEGAS does not work and plan based on market’s mentality. That is why we have kept the registration fee at the same level for eight years in row, at the lowest possible level in comparison with other races of the same level, and the same stands for the standards of the services we offer. As it is known, this year’s increase of the registration fee is only 2 and 3 Euro in the 5km and 10km Road Race respectively, and was only decided so that we support with our own resources and not public funds which are not available any more, the national goal of having the international seat of the Marathon movement in our country.

 

The Hellenic Athletics Federation (SEGAS) is proud to announce the staging of the 4th ATHENS HALF MARATHON on 03 May 2015. The Athens Half Marathon is an international event open to all and a unique opportunity for runners from Greece and abroad to participate in an ideal race in the heart of spring, along and next to the most significant and historical buildings and sites on the streets of the Athens City Centre. The Athens Half Marathon is a race addressed at the same time to those that wish to test themselves before running a Marathon Race, as well as to the runners of shorter distances, who participating either in the 5km or the 3km Road Race of the event join the biggest city ‘s celebration.
