A nice but hot run through the large forested park
The beer stop - the beer cunningly hidden in a cupboard in a derelict house on the estate
The walkers join the runners for refreshments
The hare's down-down

Mad Dog gets a David Bailey photographer down-down
Adonis poses with Doggy Style outside the restaurant (really a Mezedopoleio)
A last minute decision to see if there were tables available at the
very popular "Illegal" or "Unlicenced" restaurant in Maroussi.
Luckily there were as many people had gone to the beach that (hot) day.
A light and tasty meal cost us just 8 euros each.
Doggy Style pours the complimentary Raki to go with the complementary water melon.

Go through/past Kifisia.
Get into the left-hand traffic lane & then turn left at the KAT traffic lights - directly into the Syngrou Park car park entrance.
NOTE: If you reach the Odeon Cinema complex on you right-hand side you have gone too far. Turn round here, as there are traffic lights, else you may end-up in Marousi.
Metro / Electrico
Take the Piraeus - Kifisia line and get off at the KAT (hospital) station. Once out of the station, walk up the road at right angles to the railway tracks in the direction of the KAT hospital.
