Back to Back Marathons & Running Events in Cyprus.
We will be running both Paphos and Limassol Marathons, they are a week apart so this is a great opportunity to get two in back to back on this beautiful island that has over 350 days of sun.
The first marathon is Paphos, we plan to have a few days in Paphos and then move onto Limassol.
We have ran both of these two marathons before so if anyone wants any advice please contact us.
We can recommend both of these, if you don’t want to run the marathon you could also run the Half, 10k or 5k events.
We will provide more updates in due course.
Crete Marathon, 10K and 5K take place over the Easter Weekend on the 21st April 2019, come and join us for a great running event in the sun. Yes its only a week away from London but what more could you ask for, a run in the sun away on the shores in Greece.
We will be travelling on Saturday 20th from Gatwick and returning on Wednesday 24th April.
We will be staying at the El Greco Hotel in Chania Old Town.
Please feel free to drop me a line either via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via Facebook if you would like any help or advice regarding joining us on this Easter Bank Holiday trip Marafuning and a great time in the sun 🙂

Vroni Recommends :
Would you consider coming with me to the hills of Germany for a fun run ??
This is a beautiful Ultra / Mara / Half and they have the best Bratwurst in the whole of Germany !
It’s been voted the most beautiful trail event in Europe and it truly is!
Nearest airports are Berlin / Frankfurt or Munich – all equally far, unless they reopen the Gatwick – Erfurt Route which would then be a 45 min drive only.
There are plenty of Hotels in the area and spectators can spend the time hiking , eating or drinking a decent German beer 🍻 (or eat cake) .
Please contact Vroni Royle for further info on this event.
I understand that there are a good few joining her already 🙂
