What is Pikermi?
Basically, the term Pikermi relates to the route of the original “marathon” in Greece, which was from the town of Marathon to Athens approximately 26.2 miles (the distance of a marathon). The town of Pikermi is about the mid-point between Marathon and Athens, therefore being a distance of about 13.1 miles.
