Drone View of the 29th Run of Athens Marathon

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Given the Greek origins of marathons, it's no surprise that they are regular events there.  In this video, contributor Aerial_Rizikianos used a drone to film the 29th Athens Marathon, the country's most prominent run.  As you might imagine, the notion of this being the 29th run does not count the historical run which started it all: the 26 mile covered by the messenger in 490 BC to let the people of Athens know that their city-state had decisively (and surprisingly) defeated the Persian army under King Darius I at the Battle of Marathon.
