When i saw this "Spartathlon" word appeared on my FB timeline, i know it's something that would be interesting to continue read it.
When i first saw it, my mind only have Sparta 300 ! haha...
I believe, Seow Kong, the only Malaysian who is joining SPARTATHLON which cover 246 KM or 153 miles. It's amazing on how he able to qualify for the event! Hard work and effort are put into the training for it.
" Thirty years is celebrating the international race of ultramarathon "SPARTATHLON" which will take place the weekend of 28-29 September in Athens-Sparta route distance 246 km.
The race is conducted on the footsteps of Pheidippides, the ancient Athenian runner and is notable as part of the big names in the field of ultra while many foreign broadcasters and news agencies will cover the organization that revives a piece of Greek history.
As is known, Pheidippides was sent to Sparta in 490 BC, before the battle of Marathon, to ask for help in the war led by the Greeks against the Persians. According to Herodotus, Pheidippides arrived in Sparta the day after his departure from Athens.
Exclusive sponsor of "SPARTATHLON 2012," is the Foundation "STAVROS NIARCHOS" and for three years until 2013.
In this year's event, held for the 30th year by the International Association SPARTATHLON, have registered 350 athletes, including 315 men and 35 women. Greece will represent the organization of 44 men and 4 women. The top long-distance runners will be at the start Friday, September 28 at 7:00 in the morning on the Acropolis in front of the Herodeon. There will be representatives from the municipalities of Athens and Sparta as well as many foreign TV crews and news agencies to cover the event."

All the best to Seow Kong tomorrow 7:00am (Greece time)
