The Hellenic Athletics Federation (SEGAS) will all respect towards the thousands of runners from all over the world who have shown confidence to its credibility and the provided level of services that characterize all of its events, as well as with sense of responsibility towards this major international, sport, as well as cultural event of Greece, wishes to make clear to everyone that the 2015 “ATHENS MARATHON. THE AUTHENTIC” will be held in all cases, as already scheduled on Sunday 08 November 2015.

Taking under consideration the significant increase of registrations so far, It is our strong belief that the number of participants in this year’s Marathon Race will be higher than ever before. We feel the need to point out the moving interest shown by runners around the world, who not only keep confirming their intention to be in Athens and participate in this year’s event, but are continuously expressing their support to Greece. The thousands of runners from abroad, who have already registered or keep registering the last days, state that now they have one more reason to be in Athens in November; their eager to prove their support and confidence towards a country that has been suffering an unprecedented crisis. The message we received from a runner saying “If this is a little bit of a contribution to help the people and nation of Hellas in a time of European turmoil, I will be very happy to be there” is typical of the way the entire running community feels.

SEGAS is committing that all possible efforts will be made so we organize and present a perfect, at all aspects, event, without any discount as to the level of services and competition standards, highlighting the values and ideals not only of world sport, but those of the willingness and “soul” of Greek people.
