Promotion: The running festival in Cyprus returns on March 23-24

Anyone wishing to take part in the fantastic OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 March has until the end of November to take advantage of 20% off all competitive races.

Now is the perfect time to start planning the spring race diary and anyone heading to #RunLimassol will not be disappointed! A beautiful spring climate, a spectacular coastal route, magnificent views out over the sparkling Mediterranean and a warm, friendly welcome make OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO a must for any runner.

The choice of race distances makes the event ideal for running clubs with members of different abilities, as well as for friends and families wanting to combine a professional race with a superb weekend away. In addition to the AIMS-accredited marathon race are the Limassol Half Marathon, the Petrolina 10K Energy Race and the 5K City Race – all serving as ideal warm-ups for other spring marathons and running events, as well as a great incentive for winter training.

For anyone who was unsuccessful in this year’s Virgin Money London Marathon ballot, OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO is a top-class alternative and a race worth running in its own right. The race boasts a remarkably flat and fast course along Limassol’s coastline, offering huge PB potential. A record number of competitors achieved a PB at the 2018 event, which also saw the biggest contingent of British runners head to Limassol to soak up the celebratory atmosphere, stunning scenery and first-class hospitality.

Tempted but not sure of logistics? The organisers have put in place some excellent race packages, such as the popular #RunLimassolPlus package which includes discounted race entry, official race technical t-shirt, the lowest accommodation rates, pasta party pass, finisher’s photo, race pack delivery to the hotel and transportation to the start line. Great value air fares are also available for the spring period from the UK to Paphos and Larnaca.
