The Athens Marathon 2017 was my best Marathon experience to date! Firstly, I finished at my initial target time of 3:30 even though I had some reservations after seeing and hearing about the long uphill climb. Secondly, my travel and stay in Athens was such a pleasant journey that it just makes me smile to re-tell this story to family and friends. The Premium Registration & Hospitality Program has made a wonderful arrangement of the Marathon registration, accommodation, cultural tours, culinary tastings, transportation, AIMS gala, pre-race briefing, pre-start preparations and finish line support. During my stay in Athens, I learned more about its culture, its history and the significance of the Battle of Marathon to Athens, and what it meant for me to trace the footsteps of Pheidippides from Marathon to Athens. Special thanks to Bond Events team for making the Athens Marathon an amazing running experience!!
My experience of the trip is excellent! I will definitely recommend it to friends and family and to anyone else. You and your team have done excellent work.
We had a really great time in Athens with the group. Starting with the Acropolis Museum tour where we had a private guided tour. The gastronomic tour in Plaka was a surprise. I did not expect a guided tour of the city and stop to eat in so many places. Lunch was terrific. I asked my sister and she told me that the restaurant that you took us is one of the best restaurants in Athens, often booked fully and impossible to make reservations. The tours on Saturday and Monday were great too. We had a small group, nice transportation, terrific guides. Even though I was born and raised in Athens, I learned a lot of things I did not know about my homeland. Lunch in Piraeus and Nafplion was great too. We did not take advantage of your services on race day but I heard from other runners that they were fantastic, being next to celebrity runners and having VIP access to the Stadium. Overall, my family and I were very pleased with the program. You took us to the best places to eat, the tours were very well organized, the company of the other runners was great. I am glad that we signed up! If we ever come back to run the race again, I will certainly take advantage of this program. It is worth every penny. I will also recommend it to any of my running friends who are thinking of running the Athens Marathon.
One of our best trips. There is no better way to run the Athens Marathon than to participate in your hosted event. From the day trips, guided tours, receiving our bibs, guide to the start line, personal bag check at the last minute, to being able to start at wave 3 and having our own tent!! Just fabulous! A friend of my niece is running the Athens race next year and I will definitely recommend her to join your group.
Thank you for organizing this experiential program. We are delighted that we run the Athens Marathon and so lucky that we decided to register to the Premium Registration & Hospitality program. It is really unique; no Marathon race in the world has this kind of program. We will certainly recommend it to our friends running the Marathon.
Premium Registration & Hospitality Program is very well organized, we experienced great hospitality and VIP treatment. The race organization was also great and the privileges offered really special!
