About Green Halfmarathon
The 1st Green Halfmarathon Road, which took place in 2011, was dedicated to Lefkadios Hern and for that reason a delegation of the Japanese Embassy in Greece visited the island and participated in the event. Since then, the organization has been carried out in the presence of the Japanese Embassy. This is the 9th consecutive event.
