The race is on for the Athens Authentic Marathon
The 38th Athens Authentic Marathon will be held on the weekend of November 13-14, and a press conference on the annual run will be held on Wednesday, November 10, organisers said.
A new feature this year is that each race will consist of two groups that start at different times, in observance of health protocols during the coronavirus pandemic. A total of 30,000 runners have registered so far, including 10,000 in the main race.
Deputy Sports Minister Lefteris Avgenakis will run the 5km race that starts from the Bodossakis Mansion on Amalias Avenue, at Syntagma Square, at 08:00 on Sunday.
The press conference will be held at 13:30 at the covered Taekwondo Stadium. Half an hour earlier, the Marathon Expo 2021 fair will be inaugurated and will be open until November 13 (10:00-20:00).
