The First Half Marathon of Kallithea 2019

The First Half Marathon of Kallithea, an event organized by the Filathlitikos Association of Kallithea, Moschato-Tavros in cooperation with the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre, is a new event in the running movement and it consists of 21.1k and it will take place on Sunday 22nd September 2019.

This running event is under the auspices of the Regional Authorities of Attica, the Municipality of Kallithea, the Ministry of Tourism, the National Tourism Organisation, and the Hellenic Athletics Federation and all the races are certified by AIMS and IAAF.

The races besides the 21.1k include a 5k race, a 1k race for children and the relay race 2x10.5k. In addition, there will be cultural events and workshops in the open areas of the SNFCC on the topics of sports and well-being to ensure that more people come to love running.

The SNFCC area connected to the Water Plaza via the Esplanade Bridge are the ideal route for the 21.1k of the Half Marathon as well as the 5k race.

Our events are a unique and very important initiative which will open up the borders of our city to Europeans and athletes from further away, as Theseus – the symbol of our city – did in mythological times. It will inform the participants who are visiting our fair land about our history through the meaning of fair play, especially when this happens in areas as rich with history as Kallithea.

It is worth noting that a significant part of this Event is its charitable character since a part of the proceeds will be used to support organizations that serve good causes.
