The organisers of OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO have issued the following statement which can also be read on their website
In face of the recent developments with the novel COVID-19 virus, and as part of its containment strategy, the Cyprus government has decided that among others all public gatherings of more than 75 people will be banned.
Due to these circumstances, the organising team of the OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO announces the postponement of the event which was to take place on Saturday and Sunday, the 21st and 22nd of March 2020.
As promised to our runners, friends, sponsors and associates, the organising team of the OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO has an operational plan to reschedule the event. The new dates for the 14th OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO are the 21st and 22nd of November 2020.
We will be in contact with all affected parties (runners, visitors, sponsors and associates) to support all of their enquiries.
Despite the disruption, and our consequent disappointment, this decision has been made by the government of Cyprus and it is our obligation to abide by it.
Further updates on the issue will be communicated via our website and social media.
