Athens, Greece Marathon
Run the original!
In 490 BC, the first battle for democracy was fought at the Greek
village of Marathon. Though overwhelmingly outnumbered by an invading
Persian horde, the citizen-soldiers of Athens won and preserved
the classical Greek way of life. Legend has it that the Athenian
messenger Phidippides ran twenty-five miles to Athens, carrying
news of that stunning victory. The modern marathon commemorates
The running experience of a lifetime . . .
The course of the Athens Marathon covers the very ground that Phidippides
trod 2,500 years ago. When you run the Athens marathon, you travel
in the footsteps of the ancient gods and heroes that gave birth
to western civilization. You can almost feel Phidippides running
beside you. It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience you'll never forget.

2009 Testimonial: "I just wanted to send
along this photo and to express Beverly's and my appreciation for
making our Athens experience truly a trip and marathon experience
of a life time. We are living proof that with a good base of training
and with the walk break intervals you recommend the 26.2 miles is
a goal that is obtainable. We appreciated all your helpful tips,
recommendations and encouragement. The stories of your running career
and experiences were real treasures to hear.
When we signed on with Apostolos Greek Tours we had faith that it
would be a good experience. The overall experience exceeded our
expectations. We could not have asked for a nicer team of coaches
than you and your wife.
Thanks again for helping us accomplish a memory of a life time.
Best wishes, John and Beverly Bonsett"
