Today was the big day! The Authentic Athens Marathon, 26.2 miles from Marathon to the Panathenaic Stadium in Athens began at 9am this morning and Steve was at the start line.
See Steve’s race report, in his own words, below.
Along with the marathon, I joined over 18,000 runners from across the world for the 10K (6.2 mile) race.
Both of us completed our respective races, each course being hillier than expected.
The highlight in both cases was to finish the run in the marble stadium to fanfare suitable for the gods. We both took photos, so enjoy!
