The Athletic and Cultural Club Athenian Runners (ATHINAIOI DROMEIS) in close collaboration with FAOS mountaineering CLUB is in the position to announce the:

4th Authentic Phidippides Run Athens-Sparta-Athens 490 km 16-20/11/2018  under the auspices of the Hellenic Republic Ministry of Tourism, GREEK NATIONAL TOURISM ORGANISATION, the Hellenic Police, the Hellenic Association of Mass Popular sports and Ultra Running Clubs (E.O.S.L.M.A-Y) and UESpT. Supported by the city of Athens Municipality.

We strongly believe that this Run should be in any case among the Ultra Running events, as the feat of the Day Runner Phidippides is tied to the history of Greece. On our part we will make every effort to organize the event under the best conditions and have every single participant fully satisfied this year too.

Run to the steps of Phidippides...become a day runner...
