This year’s Marathon “Alexander the Great” has turned out to be a great success with a number of participants exceeding all anticipations.
The amazing fact is that not only the contestants were more than 14.000 but they were also people from all over the world including El Salvador proving that the competition has already overcome all boundaries becoming gradually a global challenge.
This is very promising since both the number of participants and the attendance of global visitors and runners is constantly increasing.
This is a huge accomplishment for the residents of Macedonia who had envisioned this Marathon as a gathering of the “Great”.
Thessaloniki is well known for the splendid events that it organizes being always one step ahead in world trends while at the same time supporting its long rooted culture with original happenings.
If you ever get the chance to visit Thessaloniki you should definitely choose to stay at City Hotel, the urban nature design hotel of its vibrant centre and attend one of Thessaloniki’s great festivals or sports fiestas.
Visit Thessaloniki and be Great!
