English is widely spoken in Greece and Euros are the preferred currency, which means a simpler currency exchange if you extend your trip to other countries in Europe.

Incredible Destination

In case a trip to Greece wasn’t enticing enough, this race finishes inside the 1896 Panathenaic Stadium, built for the first modern Olympic Games.

Historical Signifiance

This race follows the fabled route of Greek messenger Philippides, who ran to the town of Marathon and back to Athens to bring news of a Greek battle victory, thus inventing the idea of a "marathon"!

What IS FundRacing?

FundRacing is a fun way to get a guaranteed race entry into some of the most popular races around the world while fundraising a set amount of money that directly provides our members with the skills, resources, and opportunities to take back control of their lives.

Our members face the harsh realities of homelessness and/or addiction. Getting back on track can seem insurmountable, and often, the hardest step is the first one. But when you FundRace with the Back on My Feet team, you fuel our members’ ambition to keep putting one foot in front of the other.

Moreover, in many cities, you have the unique opportunity to run alongside the individuals you support. Hundreds of our members have completed marathons, and some have even completed ultra-marathons!
