Marathon Tours & Travel first started offering travel packages to the Authentic Athens Marathon in 1983. For the 2,500th anniversary of Pheidippides’ run from Marathon to Athens, we brought more than 900 runners – the largest group from anywhere in the world. Today, almost 25 years later, we are still pleased to be the official travel operator for runners originating from the United States and Canada.
Every runner dreams of following in the footsteps of Pheidippides and now is your chance to join runners from around the world at the 35th Athens Authentic Marathon. In addition to the marathon, a 10K and 5K are also available. All of the races finish inside the classic marble stadium, the Panathenaic Stadium. Our four-night package provides the choice of two excellent hotel choices, a half-day Athens city tour, full breakfast daily, a welcome reception and the services of a Marathon Tours & Travel staff.

I enjoyed doing this destination trip with a travel group! It was fun, well-planned, but you still had free time to do your own thing! Two thumbs up for Marathon Tours. Jen and Anne were fantastic.
The day trip to Delphi was my absolute favorite and the highlight of my Greece trip.
