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 38 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 38th Athens Authentic Marathon. In addition to the marathon, a 10K and 5K are also available on race weekend. All of the races finish inside the 1896 the Panathenaic Stadium, built for the first modern Olympic Games. Our four-night package provides the choice of two excellent hotel choices, a half-day Athens city tour, optional half day tour, full breakfast daily, a welcome reception and the services of a Marathon Tours & Travel staff.

A+ overall trip. We had a blast and would recommend it to anyone. This was our first Marathon T&T trip, and we will DEFINITELY be going on another one!
This was my 4th trip with Marathon Tours and every time its been a great experience. Anytime I do a race overseas, Marathon Tours makes it an enjoyable experience.
I highly recommend my tour group - Marathon Tours and Travel. Many of my fellow participants have traveled with Marathon Tours and Travel to other events, which is the best recommendation. I was impressed with the organization and friendliness of our two guides - Stephanie DiBrita and Nicole - who herded their 50 or so cats into a cohesive whole. Communication, hotels, buses, dinners, time tables were spot on. My fellow tour group members were a varied lot, mostly from United States and Canada, and all committed participants in training and running and racing. One gal marked her 100th marathon and completion of the "Seven Continents Club". Another couple has run marathons in all 50 states, and is working on running half-marathons in all 50 states. We discovered commonalities and favorites, and certainly will encounter one another at future events. Wonderful times sharing stories.
