action from Limassol Marathon

Runners looking to cheer themselves up after the rigours of the British winter need look no further than OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO (17/18 March 2018). Organisers have confirmed that two levels of race packages are now on offer with the #runlimassol package including discounted race entry and T-shirt, and the premium #runlimassolPlus including the lowest accommodation rates, 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.

These two levels of package give runners the flexibility to be independent or to arrive in the knowledge that everything is taken care of for race weekend. For visitors travelling from overseas, the #runlimassolPlus package is a highly attractive option that allows competitors to focus on their race rather than the logistics of race weekend. The package guarantees high quality hotel accommodation to suit different budgets, a positive social experience with like-minded runners and free entry to the popular pasta party the night before the marathon race.

Saturday 17 March sees the 5K Corporate Race and the Andrey and Julia Dashin’s Foundation 1K Youth Race ahead of Sunday's AIMS-accredited Limassol Marathon, half marathon, 10K and 5K.  Participants can look forward to a festive atmosphere, superb support and plenty of entertainment and activities across the two days. The event concludes with a fantastic closing ceremony and after-party to celebrate the many sporting achievements of the weekend.

Entries to the OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO 2018 opened shortly after the 2017 event, and the organisers have reported a record number of early bird entrants to date. With a generous 40% discount on all competitive races until the end of October, those who sign up early will be rewarded with great value prices. It is also the right time to secure the best prices for flights from the UK.
