Explore Rhodes on foot in the Greek Island's fantastic marathon, with a stay in a relaxing Rhodes hotel - including breakfast and spa treatment discount
As the largest of Greece’s Dodecanese islands, Rhodes is always a winner when it comes to brilliant sandy beaches, ancient ruins, frescoed churches, Crusader castles, and a guaranteed eight months of sunshine. Now you can add an active element to your stay with a spin around the island during the 42-kilometre Roads to Rhodes Marathon on the 14th April 2019. In the spring sun, you’ll join hundreds of runners hot-footing it around the ancient streets. What’s more, all finishers (within six hours) receive an official medal and certificate, refuelling gels and refreshments throughout, a finish-line sports massage and swag bag complete with an Adidas technical t-shirt and sponsors gifts. You’ll also have entry to the pre-race pasta party the night before, to ensure you’re properly powered for the race ahead.
With the beautiful scenery of Rhodes to discover en route the miles will tick past as you pound the streets. The route has been designed to pass many of the island’s beauty spots, including the Freedom Gate, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the medieval Old Town fortress walls and the endless blue coastline for most of the route. With two laps of the island the course is flat, so you can simply settle into a rhythm and enjoy the views. Beginning and ending in Eleftherias Square, the logistics couldn’t be easier, and you’ll enjoy an entirely car-free route along the way.
With a choice of two hotels on offer, you can opt to stay in a coastal retreat or upgrade to a half-board escape in a luxurious spa resort with a plethora of treatments on offer. You’ll be staying in Rhodes Town, just west of the UNESCO-listed Old Town most famous for its 600-metre-long Street of the Knights. For first-timers and repeat visitors, must-dos include hitting the bars, pubs and clubs along Orfanidou Street (also known as Bar Street), checking out the Neohóri shopping district, and getting some Insta-worthy shots of the rampart walls. Should time allow, it’s worth visiting Prassonissi for its surfing action, Asklipion for its medieval castle ruins, and Lindos for its magnificent Acropolis, whitewashed houses, and cobbled streets.
