What did the officials say?

David Heathfield, Head of Corporate Affairs at Chiltern Railways said:

“The 2019 London Marathon is such an iconic event which raises so much money for great causes. That’s why at Chiltern Railways we’re putting on extra trains and more carriages to help spectators go to support their friends and family on the route. Our free travel for runners will help to get runners to the start line and tired legs home.”
