The organisers of OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO 2020 have confirmed that the event that was due to take place on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd March 2020 has been postponed to Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd November 2020.
The announcement comes as a result of containment measures in Cyprus and across Europe due to COVID-19.

The organising team of OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO are working hard to deliver the best possible outcome and have issued a postponement policy for runners who were due to #RunLimassol this month. Measures include the automatic transfer of race places from the March event to the November event.
All communication, enquiries and questions regarding the event should be made by email only to firstname.lastname@example.org.
