Following the cancellation of the 2020 Athens Marathon event, and with respect to the need of the international running community to participate in running events, the Hellenic Athletics Federation and the Athens Marathon Organizing Committee presented last month a new virtual race; the “Athens Marathon. The Authentic – 2020 Virtual Edition”, or as we call it, the 2020 Virtual Athens Marathon, that opened on November 8th and would last until November 22nd. Thousands of runners in Greece and around the world have already registered and participated in our virtual race, fully respecting all guidelines and instructions for the protection of Public Health issued by the Local Authorities.

Given the huge interest shown towards the 2020 Virtual Athens Marathon event by runners all around the world, and taken under consideration the stricter guidelines regarding private running locally as well as internationally, we have decided to extend the registration period up until November 27th, 2020. Furthermore, and given the fact that someone may register until November 27th, participants will have the possibility to upload their result/time in the “Athens Marathon and Half” application up until Sunday November 29th in the evening.

Let us thank all those who have already registered and participated in the 2020 Virtual Athens Marathon, concluding in that way their participation in a different but equally important running event in a difficult period for all.
