Virtually, Anywhere in the World
If you record all of your times on each of the 25 days, you will complete your marathon distance 25 x 1.048 = 26.2 miles which will be submitted to the Run Athens Leader board.
On completion, you will be rewarded with the Run Athens Bronze Medal.
Special Marathon Challenge
To complete the special challenge for Run Athens you must complete your marathon time in under 3:18 minutes to beat the 1896 Summer Olympics winner Charilaos Vasilakos (3:18:00) of Greece who was the first man to win a competitive marathon race.
You will need to run your 1.048 miles in 6.9 minutes or quicker each day to complete this challenge, defeat Charilaos Vasilakos marathon time and be added to our special event leader board for the Athens Virtual Marathon Major.
Each Virtual Marathon Series has a special challenge linked to the event, based on a piece of marathon history specific to the event location. So whether it is beating ancient marathon times or getting your next PB, the Virtual Marathon Series will help you virtually become the greatest of all time.
We'd love you to run for Dreams Come True and raise funds for us, we know times are tough at the moment for everyone so anything you can raise to help support us will go a long way. Our supporters are targeting £50 to £200 depending on the difficulty of the challenge they undertake but anything you can raise at this time will really help to deliver more dreams to more seriously ill children and young adults - and it's all because of you! Thanks so much!!
