After an emergency meeting with the local operators of the Municipality of Marathon and the Civil Protection of the Municipality, we were informed that on April 20, 2022, Law 4926/2022 was passed.
According to Article 129 of the above Law, on the days and in the areas where the danger index is category 3 (high), category 4 (very high) or category 5 (alarm status), a decision may be issued prohibiting transit, stay and traffic of persons and vehicles, in NATURA areas, as well as in forest ecosystems, parks and groves.
Until 20/04/2022, a traffic ban was issued in these areas when the risk index was category 4 and above.
Because the fire hazard index in the area where the PENTELIKON MARATHON takes place from May 1st onwards (and especially in June) is usually 3, we can not risk the cancellation of the race at the last minute.
For this reason we agreed with the local bodies and the Civil Protection that the PENTELIKON MARATHON race be postponed to Sunday, November 27, 2022.
We ask for your understanding.
