The CEO of HELLENIC TRAIN, Mr. Maurizio Capotorto said: "This year, more than before, we are particularly happy that our cooperation with SEGAS is not only aimed at promoting the sense of "fair play" through the organization of a top sports event, such as the Athens Marathon. At the same time, we are given the opportunity to participate in the effort launched by SEGAS to "green" the Marathon. Knowing that the train is the “greenest” travel option, HELLENIC TRAIN through a series of actions that among others, include the renewal of its fleet which already started with the new ETR470 electric trains on the Athens – Thessaloniki route, contributes to the environmental protection, aiming for the sustainable mobility and the reducing of
the environmental footprint.”

The SEGAS Vice President, Mr. Kostas Kenteris said: "We are delighted and proud, that a big company such as "Hellenic Train" is by our side, in our effort to reduce our environmental footprint even more. "Athens Marathon. The Authentic" is the biggest sports and social event in Greece and it is important that our actions benefit the country, the society and the environment. In this context, all runners who will participate in the 39th AMA, will have the chance to travel fast and with safety by using the "greenest" way of transportation, which is none other than the train".
