On Sunday April 10th, the city of Thessaloniki danced to the marathon rhythm for the third time. The feeling of running throughout the city listening to the sound of shoes on the ground, was a real delight. The participation was great, and the smiling and enthusiastic people in the city swarmed about, sending a strong message for a healthy life with sports and exercise.
