Description of Course

The OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO encourages youngsters (ages 6 to 16) to participate in the Andrey & Julia Dashin’s Foundation 1Km Youth Race. A short and easy route but a giant step to become a member of the World Wide Marathon Movement family, to share and cultivate the athletic spirit and the ideas behind it.

Our young friends will gather on the western part of the Molos in Limassol, where they will start the Andrey and Julia Dashin's Foundation 1km Youth Race. The route follows along to the end of the 500 meter seafront walkway, where they will turn 180 degrees, heading back to their start point.

Training Tips

It is very important to warm up & stretch before you start running. Run, jump, skip or hop before you start.

Bending, stretching, reaching and climbing will increase your flexibility and help your body move more easily.

Consistency is the key, be consistent, building up your running slowly over several weeks and months prior to the race.

Tie your shoes properly, laced up running shoes help to protect your feet.

Rest and recover – sleep, rest and recovery is very important for your body both prior and after the race.

Drinking plenty of water, eating fruit and vegetables prior to the race gives your body energy to help you run faster. On the actual race day, make sure you drink enough fluids.
