• Runners who participate in Race 1 of Marathon will be asked to arrive at the departure stations from 05.30am to 06.15am using the above Metro stations and

• Runners who participate in Race 2 of Marathon will be asked to arrive at the departure stations from 06.15am to 06.45am using the above Metro stations.

• Arrival instructions will be communicated to participants in detail electronic material. The main concern is the encouragement and instruction for the use of all the stations that enable the approach to the starting area in order to achieve the separation / dispersion of the runners’ arrival and to prevent overcrowding.

The boarding of the participants in the buses of the event for their transportation from Athens to the City of Marathonas, will be carried out in accordance with the current provisions and the sanitary regulations of EODY, concerning the passenger transport, using buses and EDC vehicles, with strictly obligatory instructionts for all participants / runners and the accompanying staff of the event for the use of a protective mask.

ATTENTION: In order to avoid inconvenience, the O.C. of AMA advises runners not to use their own means of transportation to the Starting Area. Runners who will go to the start by their own means must: (a) be at the starting area (Marathon) at least one hour before the start time of the first race, ie no later than 08:00' ,taking into account the distance that runners will have to walk from their disembarkation parking to the starting point (approximately 800m), (b) to take into account that on the route of the Marathon there will be a traffic ban on both streams of Marathonos Avenue from 08:00'.
