Last chance for early bird entry to #RunLimassol

Limassol Marathon

The organisers of the 2018 OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO have issued a last call for early bird entries for the event on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th March 2018.

With early bird entries closing on 31st October, athletes have less than two weeks to secure the lowest prices to #RunLimassol. The current 40% discount on all individual races means that prices are just €36 for the marathon and €27 for the half marathon, representing a fantastic saving for one of Europe’s most exciting sporting events.

Entry fees to the OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO will then rise gradually in the run-up to race day, making it a smart move to register early. In the words of the race organisers, “Be an early bird, not a lazy bird!”.

Alternatively runners can look at the excellent race packages that the race has put together for international visitors travelling to Limassol. These packages offer a great-value and hassle-free way for runners to take part in their chosen race whilst enjoying a long weekend away.

Of particular appeal is the #runlimassolPlus package which includes a 50% discount on race entry, the lowest accommodation rates across a variety of budgets, a technical t-shirt, pasta party pass, finisher’s photo, race pack delivery to the hotel and transportation to the start line. It is an ideal way for athletes, run clubs, friends and families to experience an overseas race with maximum convenience and enjoyment.

The OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO attracts athletes from near and far wanting to enjoy the flat and fast Limassol Marathoncourse, friendly atmosphere, warm spring weather and stunning natural scenery. The course, which stretches for 21km along the spectacular coastal road of greater Limassol, is one of the most beautiful of all international races and is suitable for runners of all levels.

Anyone not wanting to take on the full marathon distance can sign up for the Limassol Half Marathon, the Petrolina 10K Energy Race or the 5K City Race. Together these races offer a complete sporting experience for all abilities, whilst runners and spectators can enjoy a friendly, celebratory atmosphere and a fantastic after-party in the Old Port.

OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO Race Director Andreas Spyrou commented:We have been overwhelmed with the uptake for early bird entries to the 2018 OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO. As we enter our 12th year, we have received a huge number of early bird entrants wanting to take advantage of the 40% discount, which is in part due to the immense success of the 2017 event. It is also great credit to the team who work so hard to deliver a first-class event year on year. We look forward to welcoming back lots of runners from previous years as well as plenty of new faces to the 2018 event, and would like to remind our running friends that there are now less than two weeks left to secure the lowest early bird pricing.”
