The ultimate maximum participation limits in all event’s races, set by the Local Organizing Committee back in January, are now fully met. More than 20,000 entries in the Marathon Race, 12,000 in the 10k Race and 20,000 in the 5k Race are the main core of the 2019 Athens Marathon while another 8,000 runners, kids and Special Olympics athletes will run the shorter distances (Kids Fun Runs, 3k Race, Special Olympics Fun Run).

More than 60,000 runners from 120 countries will join this unique event that celebrates sports, culture and human values, drawing the world attention to Athens. Great athletes globally recognized for their significant performances and regular runners that are driven by the joy that participation and finish in the Panathenaic Stadium has to offer, will run side by side in a race that unifies.

The Hellenic Athletics Federation and the Local Organizing Committee are sincerely thanking all Athens Marathon friends and fans, and committee themselves that every humanly possible effort will be made in order to meet their expectations and the demands of staging an event such as the Athens Marathon, which is constantly growing, taking its place among the best Marathon Races in the world.
