An exciting day of running for people of all ages and backgrounds, the second Patras Half Marathon will be taking place in the city of Patra on Sunday, the 7th of April 2024!
This year’s event will host a total of three different sprint races, including the 5km race (for anyone over the age of 12), the kids’ 1km race (for children between 6 and 12), and, of course, the 21km half marathon, where adult runners will try their best to beat their personal and the event’s record times! All races will be starting from the Square of King George, and an array of support stations will be available throughout each event, providing the athletes with bottled water, energy drinks, and medical help!
Furthermore, all runners will receive their bib number, automated timing, a safe spot for their belongings, a small bag, an online certificate of participation, and a commemorative medal upon completing their race! Also, there will be cash and trophy awards for some of the best records in men’s and women’s categories, split amongst six different age groups! Prizes will reach up to 1000 euros, giving extra motivation to well-conditioned athletes, as well as bringing an element of competition to the event!
