The biggest kids party that Athens have ever lived will take place on Sunday 09 November, in the framework of “ATHENS MARATHON. THE AUTHENTIC”.
More than 5,000 children from seven different municipalities along the Marathon course will become themselves the precursors of the most important race of all, the Marathon Race, and will welcome the thousands of runners from all over the world to run the Authentic Marathon Course from Marathon Town to the Panathinaikon Stadium.
The number of the kids participating in the event is a record itself, as the number of municipalities (7 this year) to host such races and festivities for children along the Marathon Race, taking under consideration that last year only five municipalities had participated in this initiative.
The Kids Runs along the course have no winners and no losers. They will take place about 15 to 20 minutes before the arrival of the first Marathon Race at the specific municipality and vary in distance and number (between to 400 and 1100 participating children) depending on the hosting municipality. All kids will receive an acknowledgement medal. It should be noted that registrations for these races were more than ever expected.
