Thessaloniki is fuelled by optimism, hedonism and just a dash of chaos. Greece’s thriving second city has monuments and museums to thrill history-lovers, it is mostly walkable and has a more upbeat quality than the capital.
The centre is laced with historic sights, from the Byzantine walls threading its romantic Upper Town to the imposing Rotunda. This is a city where old and new cohabit wonderfully: the Arch of Galerius, an intricate 4th-century monument, overlooks the busy shopping drag of Egnatia, while Thessaloniki’s most famous sight, the White Tower, anchors a waterfront packed with cocktail bars. By night, the city reverberates with music and nightlife, powered by an excitable stream of international students and backpackers.
The race starts at Navarchou Kountouriotou Str. (Thessaloniki Port Authority). The Halfmarathon route follows the streets: Navarchou Kountouriotou, Nikis Avenue, Megalou Alexandrou Avenue, 180-degree turn about at Georgiou Papandreou Avenue, Megalou Alexandrou Avenue, right turn in 3rd Septemvriou Str., left turn and entrance to Adronikou Str., Tsimiski, Politechniou, 180-degree turn and entrance to Karatasou Str, and Kountouriotou Str.
