Promotion: We’ve teamed up with event organisers to offer AW readers the chance to win a package including race entry and a hotel stay

As the evenings draw in there’s no better time to plan your 2018 race calendar, and the OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO on Sunday March 18 is a perfect spring marathon to kick off the season in style.

From lining up on the palm-fringed seafront to running along the beautiful Mediterranean coastline and enjoying views of the sparkling sea and ancient ruins, this professional and friendly event ticks all the boxes. The flat, fast and straight course offers real PB potential for runners serious about their goals, while the location lends itself perfectly to post-race relaxation: chill out by your hotel pool, swim in the ocean, indulge in delicious local food or join the fabulous after-party in the Old Port!

The excellent #runlimassolPlus package is by far the best way to soak it all up, and here at Athletics Weekly we have one OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO race weekend package to give away!

» Free technical t-shirt
