The OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO is known for being flat and fast, covering long stretches of the spectacular coastal road of greater Limassol. This makes it ideal for runners of all levels including first-timers and veteran marathon runners looking to achieve a PB.
The 26.2-mile route takes runners from the palm tree-lined seafront of Molos, in the centre of Limassol, to the new port, the old harbour and the ancient ruins of the Royal City of Amathus, dating from 1100 BC. It stretches for 21km along the sparkling Mediterranean coastline, providing runners with magnificent views and a refreshing sea breeze. Add pleasant spring temperatures of 9-17°C and low rainfall in March, and it really is an ideal location for your 2018 spring marathon!
Looking for a shorter distance? With 6 races over the weekend there is something for everyone!
Until 31st October 2017 runners can benefit from a 40% early bird discount on registration fees, which means it’s just €36 to enter the Marathon.
