This year, a total of about 10,000 runners participated in the big celebration of sports, who conquered the streets of Athens with smiles and positive energy. This sporting event, which is the first mass event of a road race during the pandemic period, took place safely, in compliance with health protocols. The presence of ERGO was also strong during the race, both at the starting point with the kiosk and along the route with “ERGO dj booth” and its Animators, who encouraged and supported all the runners at every step, until the termination.

The company’s stand was the pole of attraction of the people, where it hosted the action “Become a link in the supply chain”. True to its commitment to act as a socially responsible company, ERGO organized this action with the aim of financially strengthening the National Health System, while promoting sports to protect our health. The participants rode a bicycle for 1 minute with a virtual description of the race route through the screen and the company that will convert the total kilometers into a donation to the ESY. The company will continue the implementation of this action in the other road races that it supports with its sponsorship in SEGAS.
