Tracing a path through history
Nearly 15,000 runners flooded the streets of Thessaloniki in the ninth edition of the race, which has become the biggest sporting event in Northern Greece. They ranged in age from 9–85 years, participating in the Marathon, the 10km & 5km road races, and a 1000m race for schoolchildren. Runners from 54 countries lived a unique experience, won the applause of many fans and sent a message of fitness and health through an event that resonates with social, cultural, environmental, touristic and historical significance. Since 2006 the race has linked the ancient Capital of Macedonia, Pella, with the modern one, Thessaloniki, and brings the name of Alexander the Great before a worldwide audience.
