Run in the sun at the 2019 OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO

With holiday season upon us and plenty of long, sunny days to inspire us to get out there and run, now is the perfect time to book OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO next spring.

Cyprus’ largest sporting event takes place on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th March 2019 and for any British runner it is the perfect reward after a cold, dark winter. By March, Limassol will be basking in the beautiful Mediterranean spring, treating runners to plenty of sunshine and blue skies yet still remaining relatively cool and comfortable for running. With an average temperature of 13⁰C, and highs of 19⁰ / lows of 9⁰, March is the ideal time to #RunLimassol and reap the reward of all that winter training.

In addition to the superb climate, March is one of the cheapest times to fly to Cyprus, with plenty of airlines offering low cost flights from UK airports to Paphos and Larnaca. Combined with one of the excellent race packages on offer from the race organisers, OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO is a highly feasible option for all budgets.

The exclusive race packages offer a great-value and hassle-free way for runners to take part in their chosen race whilst enjoying a long weekend away with friends, family or running club friends. The 2018 event certainly saw plenty of runners book packages with non-running friends and family to make the most of the glorious beaches, weather, food, history and culture – ensuring plenty of support on race day and a celebratory holiday atmosphere for everyone.

The #RunLimassol package includes a 40% discount on race entry and official technical t-shirt. The #RunLimassolPlus packages includes a 40% discount on race entry, official technical t-shirt, the lowest accommodation rates across a range of 3, 4 and 5-star hotels, pasta party pass, finisher’s photo, race pack delivery to the hotel and transportation to the start line. Both packages are available to book now.

OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO 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 and a perfect opportunity for serious runners to achieve a PB. Six race distances are offer, including the AIMS-accredited OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO and Limassol Half Marathon, all of which offer magnificent views of the sparkling Mediterranean.

OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO Race Director Andreas Spyrou commented: “At OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO we have a saying, ‘run with a smile’, because on race weekend you can’t help but smile at the beautiful weather, friendly atmosphere and spectacular scenery. For our international visitors we are delighted to be able to host a first-class weekend away with a choice of professional races and bespoke race packages. This is really something special to look forward to at the end of the winter.
