Registrations for the 10km & 5km Morning Road Races exhausted! A few places still available!

An amazing response by runners who wish to participate in the greatest running event of Greece was witnessed on Monday 4 April. Registrations for the 10km & 5km Morning Road Races closed only a few hours after opening and eight months before the Athens Marathon event to be held on 13 November 2016

Online registrations became available on Monday 4April at 12.00 noon and mainly closed 5 hours later for the 10km Road Race and 10 hours later for the 5km Morning Road Race.  Currently a limited number of entries in these two races is still available, mainly for runners travelling to Greece from abroad.

Registrations for the 5km Afternoon Road Race are still going on.

The impressive reaction of Greek runners proves the great development of the running movement in Greece as well as the credibility and high standards that SEGAS has applied in its events.

The main concern of the Hellenic Athletics Federation are safety, credibility, quality and respect towards this unique sport, cultural and historic event.

A special “Thank You!”
