Dear friends of Quantum Nicosia Marathon,
Dear runners from around the world,
September 19, 2012
This year, we continue our efforts to establish the
Quantum Nicosia Marathon as one of the biggest sporting-cultural events of
Cyprus with the organisation of the 3rd Quantum Nicosia Marathon in the following
December. Last year we announced through the press, our web portal and the calendar
of the Association of International Marathons International Marathons and Distance
Races (AIMS), an organisation which we have the honour to be a member, that the
event would take place on the 2nd of December, 2012.
Today, we officially announce that the date which
the 3rd Quantum Nicosia Marathon will be carried out, will be the 9th of December,
2012. At the same time, we have sent an informational letter to AIMS asking the
association to correct their calendar.
Because of the assumption of the Presidency of the
Council of the European Union from Cyprus - an event that happens every 13 years,
and is of paramount importance for any country of the European Union - the Famagusta
Gate, which is the primary facility and point of reference of our event, was not
available for us on the 2nd of December 2012, because it has been reserved for Government
and other important agencies for important official events and a relevant happening
of the House of Representatives of Cyprus, pertinent to the Chairmen of the Committees
of the European Parliament.
We are waiting for you to the 3rd Quantum Nicosia
Marathon, on the 9th of December, 2012, with the promise of an unforgettable
experience within the festive atmosphere of the upcoming Christmas celebrations.
