As a well-known running expert once said ‘’ "I've learned that finishing a marathon isn't just an athletic achievement. It's a state of mind; a state of mind that says anything is possible". 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!
A beautiful, flat course, which develops along the city’s coastal route. From the OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO starting point past the Molos Cultural Park, until the Ancient Amathunta Kingdom Ruins, our Half-Marathon runners enjoy a safe, professional and high standard race that takes them on a journey through the historical and cultural aspects of Limassol.
The PETROLINA 10KM Energy Race is the perfect race for the runners who have not yet built up the endurance to run the Half Marathon, but have the energy to do so! Following a beautiful 10KM route along clear flat roads, up to the famous Limassol Tourist Area where the runners will take a 180 degree turn to follow the same route back to the finish line. Along the way, the runners will have a bevy of stunning views to keep their energy levels high. And if that doesn’t help, there will be water stations with electrolyte drinks to keep those muscles flowing with the energy needed to finish the run.
While the 5km City Race may be the shortest of all the races, this does not mean that it is easy by any stretch of the imagination. Following much the same route as the 10km and the Marathon, it flows along straight roads, next to the glistening blue Mediterranean Ocean. As with all our races, the 5km City Race follows all the standards for Marathon Races as laid out by the IAAF and AIMS organizations.
The largest Corporate Team Race on the Island, this 5K is a giant morale booster and and a great opportunity for an enjoyable day out for employees of all companies.
It will blast off with much media and press coverage. If you have never participated in a road race before, use this as an opportunity to kick-start your fitness routine.
