Thousands of people of every age, experienced athletes, amateur runners and children created a unique, festive Sunday morning, by running to the parallel races of 3rd Halandri 10K Run Race. The record participation of 2000 runners from Greece and abroad, that were almost double from last year, and the high level of the event organization highlighted it as the leading one conducted in Athens. It was really touching the participation of patients from "Kareleio" Foundation that suffer from Altzheimer disease, and the winner of silver medal in the javelin at the World Athletics Championships of people with special needs.
All runners enjoyed a beautiful route, as they experienced running along Halandri River, which is one of the few open green areas of Athens. The 3rd Halandri 10K Run Race was a great opportunity to enjoy one of the most interesting and upcoming areas of Athens, where Euripides was born.
RunninGreece participated with 3 athletes that enjoyed a festive atmosphere and a well organised running event taking place at a city suburb that offers visitors a variety of choices ranging from cafes, restaurants, cinemas pubs and bars, to market and boutique shops, while the area still holds so much uniqueness to enjoy.
