Furthermore, the transfer form for the participant athletes in the cancelled 2020 race,is still open untill the end of the registrations of 2021.
In case the organizational committee decides that a participation limit is needed, the athletes in the 2020 race lists will have priority to the 2021 race lists.

Olympus Marathon is a unique trail running event held annually on Mount Olympus, the Greek mythical “Mountain of the gods”. The route revives the pilgrimage of ancient Greeks to Mount Olympus, where they ascended every year to honour and sacrifice to Zeus. The race starts the last Sunday of June from the sacred city of Dion, at the sunrise. Athletes retrace history and myth across the paths of the Mount Olympus.
