2019 marks a new era for the Athens Marathon; a period of time that will lead to even greater development and increase of participation, aiming at reaching the target of 80,000 entries in 2026 when the Athens Marathon will be celebrating its 130 years anniversary.

On that ground, and motivated by the major appeal of the Athens Marathon within Greece and abroad, the Hellenic Athletics Federation (SEGAS) responds to the demand for more entries, making radical changes in the event’s schedule and infrastructure.

The 10km Road Race will, from now on, be held on Saturday afternoon (meaning the day before the Marathon Race, on 09 November 2019), allowing the organizers to extend the maximum registration limit and allow participation to even more members of the running community

All event’s races will finish in the historic Panathenaic Stadium.The Marathon Race, held on the Authentic Marathon Course will be held as usual on Sunday 10 November 2019. The maximum registration limit in the Marathon Race is now set at 20,000 runners. One grand 5km Road Race will be held the same day morning (Sunday 10 November), in which the upper participation limit will be over doubled in compared to previous years.
