The 10th Limassol International Marathon will take place on the 10th of April 2016. This is a special year for the Limassol Marathon as it will celebrate its ten year anniversary. In 2006 the Limassol Marathon counted 70 runners. In 2015 the Limassol Marathon successfully accommodated 10,000 runners and thousands of spectators, establishing it as the largest sports event on the island. The Limassol Marathon developed into an International event that promotes both the city of Limassol and Cyprus, as last year it attracted 1000 international runners from 50 different countries. Our international runners ranged from the United States of America to Japan and Central Europe. The Limassol Marathon is the official Cyprus Marathon race, certified from the global associations, AIMS and IAAF. Due to its flat nature, beautiful scenery and perfect weather conditions, the Limassol Marathon is an optimal choice for professional runners to improve their personal times as well as for running enthusiasts which want to get introduced into professional standard Marathon running. The Limassol Marathon offers 6 different races. Apart from the Marathon and Half-Marathon Races, which are examples of organizational excellence and professionalism, the 5km PrimeTel Corporate Race is the largest corporate athletic event on the island, counting 4000 participations.
