The biggest Kids Party during the 2014 Athens Marathon

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.

“ATHENS MARATHON. THE AUTHENTIC” ON 9th NOVEMBER. Defending champion Hillary Yego faces strong challenge from event record holder Raymond Bett in Athens

The lure of the original marathon course leading from Marathon to the Panathenaikon Stadium in Athens weaves its spell not only on mass runners but the elite as well. Despite the tough course which makes setting personal bests a tough proposition indeed, the organisers of the “Athens Marathon. The Authentic” confirmed that both defending champions will return to the race on 9th November, the Kenyans Hillary Yego and Nancy Joan Rotich. Another runner who clearly loves racing on the authentic course is Raymond Bett. The Kenyan will be running the event for the fourth time, having won twice and set the current event record of 2:11:35.

The organisers of the Athens Marathon re-named the event earlier this year and it is now known as “Athens Marathon. The Authentic.” This change aims to emphasise its unique historical background and a record number of some 13,000 runners will take part on 9th November. Taking into account shorter races staged in Athens the same day and the total number of entries is expected to reach 35,000. The registration for the various event's races is closed anymore. For any opening, due to the last moment cancellations, runners can be informed either by the phone (+30 2109331113) or the event's website at: www.athensauthenticmarathon.gr
