Some 17,000 people are estimated to have taken part in the Athens Fun Run, held in the city center yesterday. The event started at 10 a.m, in front of the Panathenaic Stadium and participants could choose to take one of two routes, running over 3.5 kilometers or 8 kilometers. A separate 700-meter track started in Syntagma Square for disabled participants. All routes ended at Zappeion Hall. Traffic in central Athens was interrupted as the joggers flooded the central Athens area.
