The coastal road of Limassol provides all the conditions you will need to make your goals possible.
The OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO provides the runner with an amazing 100% coastal and 100% flat course, which is optimal for newly introduced members of the Marathon Running Community to have a first great experience, and for older members to challenge their Personal Best time!
The course of the OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO is of a low degree of difficulty. It is essentially a flat race with its unique characteristic being the long straight lines, and the greatest part of the marathon taking place along the coastal road of greater Limassol.
The start of the race is on the seafront of the Limassol city, Molos area (the promenade).
The athletes head east towards ancient Amathus, a coastal route via the municipalities of Limassol, Agios Athanasios and Germasogia. The route is almost entirely straight with no bends.
At the 8th km athletes will enter the area of Agios Tychonas which begins with a downhill run and reaches an altitude of 10 meters at the 9th km. Next, they will meet a few inclines and a downhill until the 10th Km.
The course follows one big straight line with the altitude reaching 18 meters at the 12th Km where runners will find the municipality of Agios Tihonas, changing direction from east to west and beginning the return part of the course on the other side of the coastal street, beginning with a light incline leading to the centre of Limassol.
Following the course to the city centre, athletes will pass the starting point on 28th October Avenue heading towards the historical centre of Limassol, almost at sea level, without any altitude differences.
At the 25th Km the course heads towards the new harbour passing through Christodoulou Hadjipavlou Street, Spyros Araouzou Street, Constitution, Xhelal Bajar, and Franklin Roosevelt Avenue (which is the palm tree lined road).
From there the course will revert to the historical centre again, where runners will reach the finish line.
