The OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO is an international marathon like no other and one which should be on the bucket list of every runner wanting to achieve their goals in an unforgettable location.
Taking place on Sunday March 18, 2018, the AIMS-accredited OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO ticks all the boxes for international visitors looking for a complete race experience combined with a superb weekend away.
It’s almost too good to be true: a start line on the palm- fringed seafront; a flat, fast and straight course stretching 21km along the Mediterranean coastline and offering real PB potential; magnificent views of sparkling seas and ancient ruins; professional organisation and fantastic spectator support.
