Athens Joins Global Nike We Run Movement

We Run Athens – the first Nike race organized in Greece — connected 2,500 runners for a beautiful run through the city’s ancient center on Oct. 7. We Run Athens is a part of the global Nike We Run race series, which hits 34 cities in 17 countries and connects 400,000 runners globally.

The 10K route in the historic city center traveled down iconic streets including Ermou and Patision, wrapping up in the Zappeion Gardens. Nike hosted cool-down session and a well deserved celebration of the runners’ achievements.

Greece is just beginning to build a Nike Running community. The first Nike+ Run club was held in July, inviting runners to join and train for the 10K race. Professional coaching, training sessions and interactive challenges kept runners engaged and motivated throughout the training period. The Nike+ Run club will continue hosting training sessions in Athens.
