“Experience of a lifetime - Amazing feat or organisation - despite the massive challenges, the organisers went out of their way to make this event happen. There were hiccups, of course, but you don't go to Iran to run a marathon expecting everything to go smoothly. The people of Marvdasht made this an even greater experience than the simple fact that you run from Necropolis to Necropolis touching Persepolis along the way. Unforgettable! ”

“Brilliant experience and such welcoming people - What a wonderful experience - to run the first ever marathon in Iran! Every single person we met during the three day trip were warm and friendly. They clearly made such an effort to welcome us all to their country. It was amazing to see literally thousands of locals and school children along the route, cheering. Good to run past Persopolis and start/finish at Necropolis. Yes, as you would expect there were the odd issues: main things no timing and finish blocked but overall; amazing!”
