All ready for the Quantum Nicosia Marathon at Athalassa Park
15/11/2018

7.7km race in honour of Cypriot Marathon runner who won in Boston 1946.

NICOSIA, 15 November, 2018 – The Athanasios Ktorides Foundation is moving ahead with the organisation of the Quantum Nicosia Marathon 2018 which will take place this year at the Athalassa Park.

Realising the structural problems that exist in the heart of Nicosia, the technical team has concluded that the Quantum Nicosia Marathon 2018 will take place at the Athalassa Park with a historic and milestone event of 7,700 metres as a sign of gratitude to the legendary Stelios Kyriakides who won the Boston Marathon in 1946, wearing the shirt with the number “77”.

The capital Nicosia cannot be deprived of the right to host such sporting celebrations and for this reason the race will held under the auspices of the Mayor of Nicosia. All proceeds from the event will go to charity.

We hope that when all the problems are resolved and Nicosia will be ready, the marathon will return to capital with the start and finish at the Famagusta Gate, the birthplace of the Quantum Nicosia Marathon.

Race Director for the event is the Dro.Me.A Racing runners club.

Come and join us to celebrate this sports event together.
