This year, the Athens Classic Marathon is completing 30 years and it is dedicated to the Greek politician Gregoris Lambrakis, who marched alone in the banned Marathon-Athens Peace Rally in April 1963, one month before his assassination. The 30th Athens Classic Marathon will take place on November 11th, 2012. The route will start from the Battlefield of Marathon and will end in the Panathenaic Stadium in the centre of Athens. Apart from the Marathon Route which covers about 42 km, there will also be road races for 10 km, 5 km and a power walking march. Registrations for runners and volunteers have started.
