OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO is a fantastic goal for anyone training through the British winter, rewarding runners with a beautiful spring climate, a spectacular coastal route and magnificent views out over the sparkling Mediterranean. With a choice of race distances, it makes for a fantastic weekend away for runners of all levels.
The early bird discount is a great incentive for those wanting to secure their place on the start line and have a professional and friendly race to look forward to next spring. It also coincides with the release of air fares for that period, with great value flights now available to book from the UK airports to Paphos and Larnaca.
For anyone unsuccessful in the Virgin Money London Marathon ballot, OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO is a top-class alternative and a race worth running in its own right. The AIMS-accredited marathon race boasts a remarkably flat and fast course along Limassol’s coastline, making it ideal for first-time marathon runners as well as for serious runners looking to beat their PB. A record number of competitors achieved a PB at the this years 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.
The timing of the event makes parallel races such as Limassol Half Marathon, the Petrolina 10K Energy Race and the 5K City Race an ideal warm-up for other spring marathons and running events.
