GET READY FOR THE ‘ROADS TO RHODES’ MARATHON
Could there be anything better than running a marathon in the country where both the Olympic Games and the marathon saw the light of the day? And in addition, be seduced by the beautiful Mediterranean sea and be able to sense the tide of history all along the same course. The race which meets all these requirements is “Roads to Rhodes” and takes place on the northern tip of the popular Greek island.
The route will be cyclical by the seaside in the north part of Rhodes city and will arrive in the city center of Rhodes in a festive atmosphere. The Rhodes marathon has the official approval of AIMS which ensures the validity and the international recognition of the race. Rhodes marathon is a member of the Abbott World Marathon Majors Wanda Age Group World Ranking Qualifying Series. All the races (5K, 10K, Half Marathon and Marathon) will start at Rhodes centre.
“The love of runners for Rhodes and the strong connection of the island’s residents with the marathon race inspire us to provide our best to achieve the greatest event in the history of Rhodes International Marathon,” the president of the organizing committee and vice president of EAS SEGAS Dodecanese, Marieta Papavassiliou, said.
Certified by the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races (AIMS), the event is co-organized by the South Aegean Region and the Hellenic Athletics Federation (SEGAS) EAS Dodecanese branch, with the support of the Rhodes Municipality and the Rhodes Hoteliers Association. It will be held under the auspices of the Tourism Ministry and the Greek National Tourism Organization (GNTO).
