Le marathon des hommes sur la montagne des dieux

L’athlète, l’être humain et ses efforts démesurés

La joie d’offrir, la lutte, le sourire des volontaires

La beauté, l’histoire et l’énergie unique de cette montagne mythique

La lumière grecque à travers les feuilles des arbres de l’Olympe, les sons entre ses branches, l’eau froide de la montagne

Le paysage lunaire au sommet, la vue magique à des kilomètres de distance, le regard se tournant vers les choses terrestres

Le comité organisateur du OM 2013 est très heureux et ému de présenter aux amis de la course, et à tous les autres, la production de Olyvon en collaboration avec Go-Experience avec pour sujet le Olympus Marathon 2013.

The Olympus Marathon celebrates 10 years

The marathon of the people on the mountain of the gods

The athlete, the human and his/her super-efforts

The joy of offering, the strife, the smile of the volunteers

The beauty, the history, and the unique energy of the mythical mountain

The Greek light through the tree leaves of Olympus, the sounds between the branches, the cold mountain water

The moonlike landscape up on the top, the magic view kilometers away, the eye gazing at earthly matters

The organizing committee of OM 2013 is very happy and moved to present to the friends of the race, and to all the others, the production of Olyvon in collaboration with Go-Experience for the Olympus Marathon 2013.

Thank you.

Olympus Marathon 2013

Submitted by admin1 on Sun, 07/07/2013 - 19:31

The 10th Olympus Marathon took place on the Mountain of the Gods on Sunday 30 June with the participation of 575 runners, including 104 foreign athletes from 21 countries. They ran on the paths of the gods, honoring the race with their presence in spite of the many difficulties facing our country. This year too the competition was high among men as well as women. Present were the record holder of the race, Jessed Hernandez Gispert, as well as Greece’s top mountain runners. However, harsh weather conditions, very low temperatures and very strong winds at 2,200 m and up prevented the athletes from achieving good performances and tried their endurance. The winner was Greek champion Dimitris Theodorakakos with 4.44.54. In a grand fight Jessed Hernandez Gispert ended second (5.02.38), two minutes ahead of Jancek Bokoc (5.04.18). Among women, the Russian Zhanna Vokueva came first at 6.13.27. Next was Lora Repsenko at 6.24.06, while the first Greek – Amalia Matthaiou – came third at 6.39.13. Out of 575, 519 athletes ended within the official limit of ten hours, while the average time came down to 8.01 hours. On Saturday, 29 June, 305 children participated in the Olympus Kids & Olympus Juniors races. 75 of them were children of participant athletes. The children races were the kind contribution of the Novo Nordisk company.

By the side of the organization were the Buff company, alternative energy Era Energy company,Power Bar and Solo Energy Bar, Gastrodromio restaurant, vineyard Zafiriadi, and Traditional Bardaki from Katerini.

The 2013 Oympus Marathon was also sponsored by the Region of Central Macedonia, the Regional Unity of Pieria, and the Cooperative Bank of Pieria. We warmly thank the meat company Santikidi and the chicken Stravaridi who offered the meat for the post-race meal, as well as Computer Galaxy for its help. Over 300 volunteers from the local and regional communities helped organize the race with their invaluable services.
