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
