  • We want Greeks to consider it as a “National and Tourist product”, that can be used to display and promote our country and contribute to the financial development of Central Macedonia.
  • To be settled in the global market as “The Marathon of History”.
  • To increase its entries by 20% per year.
  • To increase the interest of Greeks concerning Health Races and a healthy lifestyle.
  • To establish itself as the event with the greatest social and economic impact in Northern Greece and one of the top annual events in the country, with multiple importance.
