Young marathoners run from Azerbaijan’s northern border to southern border
Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 29
Two young fellows, promoting healthy lifestyle, named Adil Mammadli and Rufat Najafov, ran their next marathon on October 23-26 in Azerbaijan. The youngsters started from Sahil settlement (Qaradagh) to the region of Astara to say "no" to smoking. Joining the initiative of "Life is more beautiful without cigarettes" held for the second time by Azercell Telecom, the young fellows also visited Azercell Express offices located in Sahil settlement, as well as Salyan, Bilasuvar, Jalilabad, Masalli, Lankaran and Astara. With this initiative they urged all people to stay away from smoking which results in death of the thousands all over the world every year.
Adil and Rufat chose Azercell services for reliable and high quality mobile communication during the marathon. Cell phone, especially services working based on GPS and mobile internet, were necessary for the right, easy and safe navigation of the runners.
Adil Mammadli expressed his thoughts about this marathon: "This is our second march. We took the route of Baku-Shabran-Guba-Gusar-Samur customs checkpoint under the same slogan. The project "Life is more beautiful without cigarettes" took our interest since both Rufat and me are for the healthy life. We have always tried to avoid bad habits and enjoy healthy life. Therefore, focused on this slogan, we made our next march with great pleasure. We were satisfied very much with the marathon and high quality mobile services of Azercell."

We have visited Azercell Express offices on the way, met company employees taking pictures with them. I would like to emphasize in particular that our phones did not let us down throughout our march. As usual, Azercell demonstrated great result in calls, especially in mobile internet and GPS service."
