Run with a smile in the Limassol Marathon, Cyprus!
The OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO is known for being flat and fast, covering long stretches of straight, traffic-free road, including the spectacular coastal road of greater Limassol. This makes it ideal for runners of all levels including first time marathon runners and elite athletes 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, reaching a maximum altitude of 18m and 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 marathon!
Don't fancy the full marathon? You can still enjoy the beautiful Cypriot coastline with 5km, 10km and Half Marathon races also running across the weekend.
