A Marathon Athlete Among Us
The Olympus Marathon is an internationally renowned marathon race, the only one taking place in Greece, and uniquely blending the modern and ancient worlds.

On Sunday, June 25th more than 300 athletes from around the world stood at the starting point in the sacred archaeological site of Dion, at the foothill of the famous mountain of the Gods. Among them was our dear colleague Vangelis Soldatos, dressed in a YIOULA attire. Vangelis managed to complete the 44 kilometres of tough track on the slopes of Mount Olympus, reaching the height of 2780m! From all of us warmest congratulations for his endurance in a timeless athletic experience.
