Proclamation

The Olympia Marathon adapts to the new reality and therefore this year the race will be a virtual one, in order to ensure the safety of the participants.

The first priority of the organizers is the protection of public health and the supporting the implementation of state measures to limit the spread of Covid – 19.

The whole running community has two wishes. The end of this horrid period for hundreds of thousands of people suffering from corona virus as well as the return to everyday life and our races.

Each of us is giving this fight individually, by following all the rules of protection and hygiene, but at the same time altogether as one.

Our goal is to strengthen the morale of all runners and at the same time to emphasize the need for a responsible attitude towards ourselves and society as a whole.

The virtual race will take place from Wednesday 24 March until Sunday 25 April for the distances of Marathon, Halfmarathon,10 km, 5 Km and 2 Km.

Registration for the race starts on Wednesday 24 March and ends on Wednesday 21 April.

You can upload your time from Saturday 3 April until Sunday 25 April.
