The final curtain typically fell for the 9th International Marathon “Alexander the Great” with the festive event in honor of all key contributors to the unprecedented success of this year’s event. 15,000 runners of all ages and backgrounds from 53 countries, over 1,800 volunteers and 92 supporters participated in the most popular sports event in Northern Greece to promote both volunteering and tourism, by attracting thousands of visitors from all over Greece.
Official Sponsors and Supporters, Suppliers, Media Sponsors, Cooperating Institutions of Social Offer and Support Bodies, as well as representatives of the City and Volunteers were all awarded with medals and honorary distinctions by the Organizing Committee in a touching closing ceremony, while the oldest volunteer, the medical staff and Cooperative Support Bodies were individually honored for their laudable social contribution.
S. Mentekidis S.A. would like to express our deep gratitude to everyone that contributed to this flawless organization and especially to our DIOS Running Team volunteers in favor of KAPPA 2000, the culture and adapted sports center for people with disabilities. We dedicate this award, together with the beautiful memories we shared during this festive event to all of you who participated, watched, aided and stood by our efforts to highlight this historic event by all means and… Thirst for Life!
