The organisers of OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO have confirmed that runners have until 30th September 2018 to secure the very best Early Bird prices for the event on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th March 2019.
Until 30th September, runners will receive a generous 40% off entry fees to the competitive races, with prices as low as €36 for the AIMS-accredited OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO and €27 for the Half Marathon. The Petrolina 10K Energy Race and the 5K City Race are just €18.
This means that now is certainly the time to register for this friendly and professional event in Cyprus next spring. OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO is known for being flat and flat, 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.
For overseas competitors in particular, the combination of magnificent views over the sparkling sea and beautiful Mediterranean spring weather make Limassol a perfect opportunity for a few days away at the end of the winter. Last year saw the biggest contingent of British runners head to the island to #RunLimassol, joining thousands of athletes of all nationalities for this celebratory weekend of running.
With this in mind, the organisers have put in place some excellent race packages which offer a great value, hassle-free way for runners to take part in their chosen race whilst enjoying a long weekend away with friends, family or running club members. These packages are also at their cheapest right now, in line with the early bird pricing.
The #RunLimassolPlus package includes a 40% discount on race entry, official race technical t-shirt, the lowest accommodation rates across a range of budgets, pasta party pass, finisher’s photo, race pack delivery to the hotel and transportation to the start line. The race packages are proving extremely popular as they offer full peace of mind that everything is taken care of for race weekend.
Booking early to #RunLimassol also gives runners the opportunity to book the cheapest air fares, with direct flights available from many UK airports to Paphos and Larnaca.
OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO Race Director Andreas Spyrou commented: “At OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO we are proud to be able to offer a generous Early Bird discount to encourage runners to book early and have a superb race to look forward to next spring.
