Runners get together after Athens Marathon(Shanghai)

 

ATHENS MARATHON CHINA OFFICE organized a get together event for the runners that participated in 2014 and for future runners.

The event was attended by more than 100 runners representing many runners clubs from Shanghai as well as CCTV9 from Beijing.

Also invited and attended were the SHANGHAI MARATHON organizing committee, one of the marathons that have signed co operation agreement with Athens marathon.

The idea of the event was to thank the runners and have them talk, giving us feedback information about their experience this year in Athens.

The event promoted Athens marathon and  Greece.

The event was a great success, similar of which we believe has never been done before anywhere, with the Greek wine, offered by one of the sponsors MILOS.

The 4 runner speakers were overenthusiastic about their experience this year,  talking about the beauty of Greece, the hospitality, support and  of its people, the great organization of  the marathon that for all is the marathon that they dream to run, the volunteers, the spectators and of course the unique start and finish locations.

Of course they talked about the Greek food and wine, the blue sea and sky, the islands and the ancient temples

One thing that helps a lot is the STYLIANOS KYRIAKIDES story and legacy is now spreading fast in China, which gives us an added momentum when we talk to runners.
