Transportation to the Start Area of Marathon Race (including Power Walking)

Athens, the city of intellect, is part of the Attica basin situated at the south-eastern tip of the Greek mainland. The city of Athens is the capital of Greece and it is the country’s heart and its economic and industrial, as well as political and cultural centre.


Marathon is not just one of the most famous toponyms around the world, but also a city worth visiting and admiring for its natural beauty and enchanting atmosphere.
Built on the northeast coast of Attica, just 40 km away from Athens, Marathon has become a very attractive destination for visitors, as it is only twenty minutes away from Athens International Airport and just ten minutes away from the port of Rafina, a port that connects the Greek capital with the cosmopolitan Aegean islands.
