REGISTRATIONS FOR THE 5km & 10km ROAD RACES CLOSED

Just 48 hours after the opening of registrations for the 5km & 10km Road Races of the 2015 ATHENS MARATHON event, registrations closed as the maximum participation limit was met. This is something amazing for the sport community in Greece and the Greek society. Within two days, more than 3,800 individual runners visited the ATHENS MARATHON website and submitted their registration for the 5km & 10km Road Races of the event.

SEGAS and the Athens Marathon Organizing Committee would like to sincerely thank the runners and the Greek citizens that responded to its invitation and hurried to register for the unique 2015 Athens Marathon event. In case of any cancellations and new entries becoming available, SEGAS will announce the relevant availability at a later stage.

It should be noted that this huge interest on behalf of the Greek and international running community is not restricted in the 5km & 10km Road Races but it is more than evident in the main race of the event, the Marathon Race of 42,195m, for which more than 6,000 entries are already given away within three weeks after registrations’ opening. This number stands to an increase of more than 300% related to the same time last year. The interest shown by runners from abroad is more than impressive, as more than 2,000 runners from abroad have already registered for the Marathon Race.

More than 40,000 runners will participate in the 2015 Athens Marathon event. This is not just a participation record but the ultimate participation limit. SEGAS, supported by several public organizations and its sponsors, keeps leading the Athens Marathon to a significant place among the top Marathon Races of the world not only with regard to the level of services offered but with regard to the number of participants as well.

On this occasion, SEGAS would like to remind to all runners that registrations for the Athens Half Marathon to be held on 03 May 2015 are still in

WEDNESDAY APRIL 1st – OPENING OF REGISTRATIONS FOR THE 10km & 5Km ROAD RACES

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.
