Athens Marathon confirms its unique status, Christoforos Merousis wins classic event

PRESS RELEASE: ATHENS MARATHON. THE AUTHENTIC

 

“The Athens Marathon. The Authentic” asserted its status as a unique race despite the problems by financial crisis in Greece. A record number of 16,000 runners went to the start line of this classic race at the very source of the event’s inspiration, the coastal town of Marathon from where the marathon was launched in the inaugural Olympic Games of the modern era in 1896. That marked a rise of almost 25% from a year ago, while SEGAS, the Greek Athletics Federation, recorded a total of 43,000 entries for this and the shorter distance events, held the same day.

For the first time since 2000 the Athens Marathon had a Greek men’s winner, which was largely due to the fact that the organisers had not included an elite international field for the 33rd edition of the race. Christoforos Merousis went into the lead within the first few kilometres from the start in the town of Marathon. Temperatures were warm, reaching over 20 degrees Celsius as Merousis ran to victory in the old Olympic Stadium in Athens, stopping the finish line clock at 2:21:22. The next two men across the line were also from the host nation: Dimitros Theodorakakos finished second in 2:27:03 and Dimosthenis Evangelidis was third in 2:27:28.

The fastest woman on the classic, demanding course was the Japanese Minori Hayakari with 2:52:06. Last year she made her

 

Cancellations of international flights

Taking under consideration the urgent situation caused due to the current LUFTHANSA strike and the changes – cancellations of international flights that affect the journey of runners travelling to Greece from abroad in order to participate in the 2015 Athens Marathon Race, SEGAS and the Organizing Committee of the event, with sensitivity and understanding for all cases, have decided to offer additional services to those registered runners. The Registration Department of the event has already sent communication via email to runners from abroad who have not yet collected their bib number and race kit, in order to identify – exceptionally – the collection of their bib number beyond the operational hours of the ERGO Marathon EXPO.

 

This procedure is set beyond any regulation and policy of the event, in order to assist in the best possible way those who have proved their support and love to this race.
