One thought on “Alexander The Great Marathon

Michele Boyle


I wold really really love to run the Alexander the Great Marathon. But unfortunately it appears that you don’t give all participants a finishers’ medal. Great if this is not the case.
Everyone needs a medal for running a marathon.
Cheers, Michele
