Thanks to T.Batjargal and Jantsan Batbayasgalan representing the marathonThe chap above is Gregoris Lambrakis, a Greek athlete and democracy campaigner who started a Peace Marathon along the same route in 1963. He was assassinated shortly afterwards but through his actions inspired modern democracy in Greece. We hear his inspirational story as we explore the terrific new running musuem at Marathon.
Many thanks to Spyridon Zagaris, Mayor of the Municipality of Marathon, Greece for his message and to his nephew for telling us the story of Gregoris Lambrakis. Also thanks to T.Batjargal and Jantsan Batbayasgalan representing the marathon and the city of Ulaanbaatar for telling us about the Mongolian International Marathon.
