Sports Tours International have been taking runners and cyclists to the biggest mass-particiation events in the world for 50 years. What’s your next challenge?

The Athens Authentic Marathon brings history to life. Finishing in the legendary stadium where the first Olympic games of the modern era in 1896 took place, you now have the chance to run this unique and truly memorable marathon route. Athens has been the centre of Greek civilization for over 4,000 years, and is dominated by 5th-century BCE landmarks. With a multitude of conquerors occupying Athens, this wonderful city welcomes you with an array of splendid monuments and historical sights.  From the temple of Olympian Zeus to the hilltop of Acropolis, with ancient buildings such as the colonnaded Parthenon temple. Athens is also known as a contemporary city and it’s not uncommon for the nightlife hubs of Kolonaki, Psiri and Gazi to stay busy until dawn.

This is the first time I have used Sports Tours and I am really impressed. The efficiency, the friendliness, the off-the-cuff vital advice all made this toughie as enjoyable as it can. Few companies have retained their ethos since covid and this is one of them.

The organisation from the Sports Tours team was amazing from start to finish – every member of staff from the airport team, mechanics, organisers, drivers and drink stop team could not do enough for us all and they never stopped smiling! Please pass on my thanks to everyone! All 8 of us finished (somehow!!) and if we are ever stupid enough to ride it again we will be using you guys to book.

For 3 years, through cancellations, lockdowns and multiple flight cancellations, Sports Tours International have remained responsive and professional – all staff and especially yourself, Vicki, very helpful and efficient, and the organisation and hotel set-up was first-class, I’d not hesitate to book with Sports Tours again.
