Any runner for whom no time is shown at the Start, the split timing zones and the Finish, will be disqualified.
The timing chip along with the bib number indicate the athlete’s identity and starting block in the electronic system.
Only athletes who: a) participate in accordance to the rules, b) are placed in the right starting block, c) have timing indications at the Start, split timing zones and the Finish, and d) complete the race within the time limit (8 hours) will have their final time and split times included in the official results list and will receive a participation certificate.

Athens is considered the intellectual and artistic centre of Greece, a jewel of the ancient world. It is the city where mankind's most precious and most significant moral values were founded. Philosophy, science, literature, art and drama are just some of the concepts born in ancient Athens. Democracy, freedom, justice and forward thinking are ideals conceived in this great city, which are the core principles of western civilization and our society today. So much of Ancient Greek History took place in the city of Athens.

Athens, the city of intellect, is part of the Attica basin situated at the south-eastern tip of the Greek mainland. The city of Athens is the capital of Greece and it is the country’s heart and its economic and industrial, as well as political and cultural centre.

The City had the honour of hosting the 2004 Olympic Games which led to major changes in the area: a new international airport, new metro lines and a new ring road around the city were constructed, while new landscaping added millions of indigenous trees and shrubs to the region. The Athens 2004 Olympic Games added a significant chapter to the history of the city, leaving behind important legacy as far as infrastructure and technology is concerned, and putting Athens among the most hospitable metropolis of the world.
