ὁπλιτοδρόμος - ὁπλιτόδρομος / ὁπλιτοδρομία

I can only find ὁπλιτοδρόμος (the person who races?) in LSJ but not ὁπλιτόδρομος/ὁπλιτοδρομία (the name for the actual race?)

I think you're right, spiros.  I can't find ὁπλιτοδρομία anywhere in ancient Greek literature, and ὁπλιτοδρόμος refers only to persons.  Bury may have nodded here;  not typical of him, though.
