About the Athens Classic Marathon
The international Athens Classic Marathon (ACM) is continuously organized, since 1983, by the Hellenic Athletics Federation (SEGAS). The opportunity of a runner to run the course that was originally run in 490 BC, by the ancient Athenian soldier and message bearer following the Marathon Battle, makes the Athens Classic Marathon an outstanding race which attracts every year more than 20,000 runners from Greece and 100 other countries all over the world. The Athens Classic Marathon has a unique international “position” since it is the only one held on the authentic, Olympic Marathon course.
