The organisers of OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO have confirmed a second wave of early bird fees for the event on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th March 2019, with 20% off all competitive races until 30th November.
With autumn now upon us and the days starting to get cooler and darker, now is the perfect time to book a spring race. OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO is a fantastic goal for anyone training through the British winter, rewarding runners with a beautiful spring climate, a spectacular coastal route and magnificent views out over the sparkling Mediterranean. With a choice of race distances, it makes for a fantastic weekend away for runners of all levels.
The early bird discount is a great incentive for those wanting to secure their place on the start line and have a professional and friendly race to look forward to next spring. It also coincides with the release of air fares for that period, with great value flights now available to book from UK airports to Paphos and Larnaca.
For anyone unsuccessful in the Virgin Money London Marathon ballot, OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO is a top-class alternative and a race worth running in its own right. The AIMS-accredited marathon race boasts a remarkably flat and fast course along Limassol’s coastline, making it ideal for first-time marathon runners as well as for serious runners looking to beat their PB. A record number of competitors achieved a PB at the 2018 event, which also saw the biggest contingent of British runners head to Limassol to soak up the celebratory atmosphere, stunning scenery and first-class hospitality.
The timing of the event makes parallel races such as Limassol Half Marathon, the Petrolina 10K Energy Race and the 5K City Race an ideal warm-up for other spring marathons and running events.
A great-value and hassle-free way for overseas visitors to #RunLimassol is to book one of the excellent race packages on offer. The popular #RunLimassolPlus package, for example, 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.
OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO Race Director Andreas Spyrou commented: “We are delighted to offer competitors a 20% early bird discount until the end of November and hope that many will take advantage of the reduced prices to register to #RunLimassol next spring. With a choice of race distances and bespoke packages, OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO is ideal for individuals, families, groups of friends and running clubs wanting to book a professional overseas race in a spectacular location. Whether as an event in its own right or as a warm up for any other spring race, Limassol is a fantastic way to kick-start race season. We are looking forward to welcoming runners old and new to this celebratory weekend of running in the sun.”
