Following the success of the 2018 event when dozens of UK runners, including big parties from UK Run Chat and Run Mummy Run, enjoyed a weekend in the Mediterranean sun at Limassol Marathon, organisers have announced race package details for 2019.
Next year's #RunLimassol festival is strategically scheduled for Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 March at the end of the British winter and race packages are a popular way for overseas athletes to visit Cyprus and enjoy this event. Packages offer a great value, hassle-free way for runners to take part in their chosen race while having a long weekend away with friends, family or their running club.
There will once again be two levels of race package available for the 2019 OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO. The #RunLimassol package includes a 40% discount on race entry and OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO technical T-shirt. The #RunLimassolPlus package includes a 40% discount on race entry, OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO technical T-shirt, the lowest accommodation rates for race weekend, pasta party pass, finisher’s photo, race pack delivery to the hotel and transportation to the start line.
The #RunLimassolPlus is a premium package that lets runners travelling from overseas focus on their race rather than the logistics of race weekend. It guarantees high quality accommodation across a range of budgets, a positive social experience with like-minded runners, free entry to the popular pasta party on Saturday, and some added extras to help the weekend run smoothly. From the luxury 5-star Amathus Beach Hotel complete with spa and tropical gardens to the 4-star Crowne Plaza and the new 3-star TSANotel, runners can create their own package choosing the best hotel for their needs.
Combined with the early bird discount currently on offer for the 2019 event, and with cheap flights available from the UK to Paphos and Larnaca, now is the time to take advantage of these packages.
OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO is Cyprus’ largest sporting event and is known for being flat and fast, covering long stretches of traffic-free road including the spectacular coastal road of greater Limassol. It is ideal for runners of all levels, with a choice of race distances and PB potential. Add to this the views of the Mediterranean and beautiful spring weather, and it provides the perfect excuse for a weekend away with an exclusive tailored package.
Early bird entrants benefit from a 40% discount, with fees as follows: Marathon €36, Half Marathon €27, Petrolina 10K Energy Race €18, 5K City Race €18.
