Volunteers truly are the driving force and the soul of our events!

The Volunteering Program of the Athens Half-Marathon:

-Aims at supporting runners and their dream for an intense sports experience.

-Inspires a large and enthusiastic team of volunteers who provide a high quality service to the runners and offer large smiles and positive energy to us all.

In our team, ''Together'' is everything. We do lead by example, we show respect to our teammates and we try our best to make it a memorable experience for every participant.

Volunteering helps you become a better version of yourself and is a consious choice; is not mandatory, it does not yield a monetary remuneration and, yet, it benefits personal growth and development. 

Volunteering is a valuable opportunity for individuals to share their passion to give back to society, thus transmitting a strong message of collectivity. 

Irrespective of age, everyone enjoys the chance to become member of a team which, in just a few hours, will offer them memories and impulses that will last a lifetime!
