hi sharon ,dont know where your friend is waiting for u at the end but it is a great atmosphere inside the stadium to watch people running in ,we run in on the left hand side of the stadium ,you are then able to after you have got your medal [if u have the energy ] to climb up into the stands to meet your friends ,my email is email@example.com
Hi Sharon , just done 12 miles and gym just for sauna , steam afterwards , 2 weeks today will be there and off to expo , should get an email this week with your race number , I would print it off and take it down to expo with u , is your friend goin down to marathon for the start or just waitin in the stadium for when u finish ?
Hi terry , do u go into Larissa from thessaloniika ? , if so I think it's only about 4 stops from syntagma so will only cost a couple of euros , your hotel is quite close to ours ( athens gate ) only 10-15 min stagger from the finish line , from the finish it would probably take u 15-20 min walk up to syntagma , might see you at the start , cheers martin
Hi terry , the trip from athens centre to the airport takes 40 mins and costs 8 euros I think for a single ticket , not sure what time the marathon desk opens at the airport to pick up your free travel pass , u can collect it at the expo though for your return trip to the airport , sounds an interesting trip terry , I take it your flying back after the race ? , cheers martin
Hi Sharon , tickets for the metro into athens can be bought at the airport , a tip for u , when u get to the expo on Saturday get another travel pass , just say you didn't pick one up at the airport then your friend can have it ( I did the same 2 years ago for my other half who wasn't running ) the bag drop is in marathon and your belongings are brought back to the finish , it is very well organised and safe and secure terry so no worries , clear plastic bags are handed out when u arrive in marathon for keeping warm ( it is early in the morning so probably quite chilly ) last year I put my gear in at the bag drop as soon as we got there , water stations are frequent and well organised , don't think gels are at the early part of the race , what time do u arrive in athens terry ? , gettin excited now , any more questions feel free to ask , cheers martin
