Running Together

Patras Half Marathon 2024

In Patras, on a flat and beautiful course that unfolds the city’s history, fans of running will experience a race filled with energy and athleticism.

Starting from the heart of the city, King George Square, we swiftly transition from the urban fabric to the coastal front. There, running parallel to the waves with a view of the Ionian Sea, we relish in the natural beauty and admire all the historical landmarks along the route. Returning and having immersed ourselves in performances, we cross the finish line once again in the heart of Patras, feeling the pulse of the city welcoming us.

On Sunday, April 7th, Patras becomes the common destination for all fans of running.

On Sunday, April 7th, in Patras, we all run together in a race full of energy, movement, and athletic spirit!

The quality of the event was evident, and the organizers' efforts to make a difference, even in the inaugural event, did not go unnoticed. Everything was excellent. Needless to say, this year, a large contingent of runners from “Phidippides” will join Patras Half Marathon once again.
