The Cyprus event offers six races, including a marathon, half-marathon and 10km

With just one month to go until the OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO, excitement is building and organisers have announced that for those still wishing to sign up, there is still time to enter the event that takes place on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 March.

With end-of-season flights available from the UK to Paphos and Larnaca, the opportunity is there for runners from Britain to enjoy an early spring race in one of Europe’s most beautiful race locations.

The OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO covers long stretches of straight, traffic-free road, including the spectacular coastal road of greater Limassol with views of the sparkling Mediterranean.

For runners who will not be marathon ready within a month, OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO offers a choice of six races. In addition to the AIMS-accredited OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO, runners have the option to enter the Limassol Half Marathon, the Petrolina 10K Energy Race or the 5K City Race, offering an opportunity for running friends of mixed ability to sign up together.

An international race pacing team will also be on hand in the marathon and half-marathon to help runners hit their targets.


“The 2018 OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO is just four weeks away and we are still accepting entries from athletes of all abilities wanting to make the most of all that Limassol has to offer,” said race director Andreas Spyrou.

“For British runners especially, the event is the perfect reward after a long, cold winter, offering a wonderful opportunity for a mini-break in the sun whilst taking part in one of our professional and friendly races.”

The organisers aim to make it easy for visitors from abroad to enjoy all that Limassol has to offer with a range of race packages. These bespoke packages are designed to offer a great-value and hassle-free way for runners to take part in their chosen race over a long weekend away, and are still available to book for the event next month.

The #runLimassolPlus package is the most popular option as it includes the lowest accommodation rates across a range of budgets, 50% discount on race entry, technical t-shirt, pasta party pass, finisher’s photo, race pack delivery to the hotel and transportation to the start line. For runners travelling on their own or with friends, family or their run club, the package creates a real race experience that allows them to soak up the relaxed social environment whilst enjoying first-class facilities and hospitality.
