The organisers of the OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO have announced the official sponsors for the 12th edition of the event that takes place on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th March 2018.
The Title Sponsor for the event will again be OPAP, who will be joined by an impressive line-up of Race, Gold and Silver sponsors, supporters and official bodies. The support of such high-profile international names adds significant weight to what is already a highly professional event attracting athletes from all over the world.

It is of great credit to OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO to have such a strong line-up of sponsors and it very much reflects the organisers’ commitment to deliver a first-class race that gets better year on year.
It is just a few weeks until the 2018 OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO welcomes some 15,000 runners over six race distances for this weekend celebration of running. The race is known for being flat, fast and straight, offering magnificent views of the sparkling Mediterranean as it follows the spectacular coast road of greater Limassol. Visitors from overseas can look forward to a warm welcome, superb spectator support and a fun, social atmosphere as they enjoy one of Europe’s most exciting international events.
The organisers have made it especially easy for visitors from abroad to enjoy all that Limassol has to offer with a range of race packages. These bespoke packages offer a great-value and hassle-free way for runners to #RunLimassol, and are still available to book for the upcoming event. Cheap end-of-season flights are also still available from UK airports to Paphos and Larnaca, making Limassol a very feasible and attractive early spring race.
OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO Race Director Andreas Spyrou commented: “We are delighted to announce our top tier sponsors and supporters for the 2018 OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO. It is an honour to have such a high-profile line-up of national and international names, headed up by Title Sponsor OPAP once more. We would like to thank each of them for supporting what promises to be our biggest and best event yet this spring. We hope that their presence will inspire runners of all ages and abilities to snap up the remaining places and join us on the start line in just a few weeks!”
