Athens Marathon unites ancient and modern for latest edition of the Authentic Race - The 35th edition of the “Athens Marathon. The Authentic” takes place on Sunday, November 12, beginning as ever from the coastal town of Marathon and leading elite and mass runners on the challenging course into the heart of Athens and the finish line in the marble arena of the Panathenaic Stadium, venue for the first Olympic Games of the modern period in 1896. The status of Athens as the birth place of the Marathon, going back to the ancient legend of the Athenian soldier Pheidippides, according to many accounts, running back to the city with news of victory over the invading Persians in 490 BCE, remains sacrosanct in distance running lore. But the week leading up to the race highlights equally the marathon scene of today.
