More specifically, this idea was inspired from the successful seven year course of the International Marathon “Alexander the Great”. The Half Marathon covers half the distance of a marathon- which means 21.095 m.

The main roads of Thessaloniki welcome exclusively the runners of the Half-Marathon while Nikis Avenue and the White Tower have been set as the starting and the end points of the race.  Similarly, the City Hall of Thessaloniki and the White Tower are set as the starting and end points of the 5.000m Race. The Half Marathon starts at sunset (18:45) while the 5.000m Health and Power Walking Race starts at night (21.15).

Thessaloniki’s Night Half Marathon offers participants an amazing opportunity to combine their athletic passion with their passion for culture as the race takes place around one of the most vivid and historic cities of Greece.
