Greece: Athens Virtual Marathon extended to November 27

The Greek Athletic Federation (SEGAS) and the Athens Marathon Organizing Committee announced that due to the increasing interest of runners from all over the world, the ongoing Athens Virtual Marathon event will be extended to November 27. 


Organizers also considered lock-in measures for personal exercise in Greece. Registration will continue until November 27, so contestants can choose to upload the results of the competition to a dedicated mobile application until the evening of November 29 (Sunday). 


After canceling this year’s “Athens Marathon”, the virtual competition started on November 8th and was originally scheduled to end on November 22nd. 


Virtual competitions provide runners with a choice. They can run anywhere from 5 to 10 kilometers, whether on the street, in the park or on a treadmill, as long as they want to improve their time and ranking.
