Santas came to town

1:25 PM


It's been already almost two weeks since the first Santa Run at the city of Athens. But christmas days are always busy so that's why this post is a liiiiiittle late. 
Santa Run is an annual tradition in many cities around the world. In Greece it was taking place for 4 years now in the magical city of Chania in the island of Crete but never in Athens. So, Athenian people were craving for it, and that's why 800 Santas run!
The route was 2,5k around Syntagma square beginning and ending at City Link, at the most central area of the city.
It was fun and sweaty, we were eating our beards, we were undressing while running, jumping on touristic trains, taking pictures and videos. 
It took a lot of sweat and joy to gain our participation medal and it was definitely worth it! 
Until next year... 
Merry Christmas! Ho! Ho! Ho!   
Αthens full of Santas
Santa likes coffee!! One shot of espresso is always a good idea.
A day to remember
And in the background.. Lycabettus Hill!!
And in the background... the old University!!
No sleigh?? .. we took the train!
Success!!
