The annual charity “Quantum Nicosia Marathon” continues this year with a full programme of races including the “king” of distances, the Marathon.
During the Marathon (42,195 km) and Half Marathon (21.1 km) races that will start from the University of Cyprus campus, as well as the honorary “Stelios Kyriakidis 7.7 miles” (12.3 km), the 5 km race and the children’s race Quantum sMile Run ( 1.7 km), runners will pass through four Municipalities promoting and enjoying their sights.
After passing through the heart of the Old City of Nicosia, the finish is at the emblematic Municipal Theater which is the center of culture of the capital.
The week will also include a “sports fiesta” in the area of Eleftheria Square, open to all.
Cultural city tours and exhibitions are also organised. On the day of the race, the park area next to the Municipal Theater is being transformed into a small “Olympic Village” with the participation of running and sports clubs.
The Athanasios Ktoridis Foundation is the exclusive sponsor.
All proceeds from the registrations will be donated to the following charities:
- “Little Heroes”
- Pancyprian Association of Autistic Children

The Municipality of Nicosia is co-organiser of the event and accompanying us on this journey are the Municipalities of Strovolos, Aglantzia and Engomi.
