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 40 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 hotel accommodations at the perfectly situated Olympic Royal Hotel, a half-day Athens city tour, an optional half-day tour to the Temple of Poseidon, full breakfast daily, a welcome reception, pre-race dinner and the services of a Marathon Tours & Travel host.

Karen, Please accept my most sincere appreciation for your absolute commitment for masterfully addressing our each and every need during our Athens adventure from start to finish! You were always available to make sure every item and/or detail move smoothly. This Athens' trip moves to the top of the list of trips I've taken with MTT followed by Tokyo and Cuba (which you lead also)! I imagine, the trip was enriched by your kind, thoughtful, patient disposition. Many Thanks Unto You!
An amazing, unexpected, brilliant trip. Traveling with in the shadow of COVID-19 made everything more challenging, but MT & our guides Karen & Laura made everything so much easier. Would travel with MT again and again.
Spectacular experience from start to finish!
