OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO is fully accredited by AIMS, the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races.
The 26.2-mile marathon route takes runners from the palm tree-lined seafront of Molos in the centre of Limassol westwards past the marina and port, before turning around to run along the coast as far as the ancient ruins of the Royal City of Amathus, dating from 1100 BC. The route stretches along the beautiful Mediterranean coastline, reaching a maximum altitude of 18m and providing runners with magnificent views and a refreshing sea breeze. It really is an ideal location to run a strong race.
The popular #RunLimassolPlus race weekend package will be available again for the 2023 event, offering a great value and hassle-free way to enjoy a weekend away. Further details will be announced over the coming weeks.
