Greek-American ultramarathoner Constantine “Dean” Karnazes has partnered with sports tourism and wellness agency ActiveMedia Group to launch Greek Running Tours.

Greece, the birthplace of the marathon, is a land where history has been created, legends made and where magic and mythology come together. As tribute to his Greek heritage and his desire to promote Greek tourism to a global audience, Karnazes gives runners the opportunity to explore Greece on foot, immersing in the history and beauty, eating the food and experiencing this legendary land in a way that few tourists ever will.

Along with the running (and a walking option for non-runners) each day will include cultural experiences – from bread making in the mountains of Crete, to olive pressing in Kalamata – as well as world-class accommodations, distinctive regional cuisine, and a full suite of spa and sports massage services.

There will be three tours available to book – Crete; Athens & Hydra Island; and Peloponnese & Ancient Olympia – with each running route distinctively designed and led by a local expert. The tours are designed for runners and walkers of all ages and abilities and support is provided along the way.
