Athens half marathon 2017 start

SEGAS (the Hellenic Athletics Federation) and the City of Athens have announced that the 2021 Athens Half Marathon event will be staged on 23 May.

This decision regarding the staging of the Athens Half Marathon event in late May, and not during the third weekend of March as usual, was taken after detailed study of all sanitary parameters and factors that are changing daily, taking into account already announced competition timings for 2021, and with priority to public health and the health of the event’s participants.

In case the conditions related to the covid-19 pandemic in Greece do not allow, even then, the staging of the 2021 Athens Half Marathon on 23 May – something we surely pray not – the 2021 Athens Half Marathon will definitely be held on 12 September, two months before the usual date of Athens Marathon.
