You can't get any closer to the origin. The Athens Marathon is known as the authentic "Mother of Marathons" for a good reason. As soon as you start in the Marathon Village, you run a demanding course to the symbolic finish in the Panathinaikon Stadium, where today's first Olympic Games were held. From the 10 km point on, there are some meters of altitude to overcome. 10 km before the finish, in the suburbs of Athens, the course goes downhill again. This run can also be done as a power walk. The wonderful finish in the Panathinaikon Stadium makes the run over the hilly course more than worthwhile! On Saturday is also a 10K.

Athens, formerly one of the world's most influential civilizations, is the center of all the world's centers. Still today the traces of Greek antiquity can be seen everywhere in the city. For example, the Acropolis towers far above the city, and in the Panathinaikos Stadium, where the first Olympic Games were held, you can relive the country's sports history. In the oldest neighborhood of Athens, the Plaka, you can enjoy the atmosphere and contemporary culture, where tasting the Greek cuisine is obviously a must. Besides the rich culture and history, Athens also offers great shopping possibilities, for example at the Monastiraki market or in the modern shopping street Ermou Street. The Greek capital Athens is fascinating from beginning to end.
