Following the overwhelming success of the 2018 race just last weekend, the organisers of OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO have confirmed that the 2019 event will take place on the weekend of Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th March.

OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO is Cyprus’ largest sporting event and is known for being flat and fast, covering long stretches of traffic-free road including the spectacular coastal road of greater Limassol. It is an ideal event for runners of all levels with a choice of race distances, and a perfect opportunity for serious runners to achieve a PB.

Feedback from this year’s event has been extremely positive, with many participants referring to the event as #MoreThanARace following on from a first-class weekend experience. Over the course of the two days, competitors and their families were able to enjoy not just their chosen race but also a fantastic social environment, friendly welcome, smooth organization, immaculate accommodation and excellent parallel events such as the Petrolina Energy Day and pasta party. Add to this the beautiful spring weather and the magnificent views of the sparkling Mediterranean, and it is easy to see why so many athletes make a whole weekend of OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO.

OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO Race Director Andreas Spyrou commented: “We are delighted to announce the dates for the 2019 OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO as the weekend of 23rd and 24th March. This will be the 13th edition of the event and we are excited to get the wheels in motion after the huge success of the 2018 event. It was a privilege to welcome athletes from 66 countries worldwide to #RunLimassol, all of whom enjoyed a superb weekend of running alongside a wonderful, celebratory atmosphere.

“OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO is a complete race experience, with many participants – along with their friends and families – coming to enjoy the beaches, weather, hotels, food, culture and history on top of their individual races. We look forward to welcoming plenty of new and returning runners to the 2019 OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO.”

The 2019 OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO takes place on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th March. Competitors are encouraged to save the date and full details of the opening of entries and the availability of bespoke race packages will be announced shortly.
