Run the original
In 490 BC......the first battle for democracy was fought at the Greek village of Marathon. Though overwhelmingly out numbered by an invading Persian Army, the citizen-soldiers of Athens prevailed and in so doing allows the first democracy to be established and preserved the classical Greek way of life that became the foundation of western civilization.
Legend has it that, when the battle was won, the Athenian messenger Phidippides ran twenty-four miles to Athens, carrying news of that stunning victory. The modern marathon commemorates this feat.
The Athens Marathon is recognized as the original marathon course and was the same course for the 2004 Olympics held in Athens.

Your Coach, Jeff Galloway
Jeff Galloway has been with our program since 1995.
Due to a prior commitment, Barbara and I will not be able to be in Athens for this years program but you will have excellent support from Paul and his staff.
The national program director of my Galloway Training programs, Chris Twiggs, will be there and can answer questions about the course, run-walk-run strategies, and virtually anything else about marathoning. Chris is a Boston Qualifier, and knows my system thoroughly.
