Nireas triathlon presents the inaugural Ayia Napa Marathon. A running event that gives runners from Cyprus and abroad the opportunity to end their running year in perfect conditions. The course is challenging for the half marathon taking athletes through the main streets of the town and out to the most iconic Cape Greco Natural Park, while it remains fast and mostly flat for the 5k course. Opening the Christmas season of the Municipality of Ayia Napa, the Fun Run offers people the opportunity to run or walk in festive costumes and contribute to charity which is the main cause of this part of the event. Finishers will have the opportunity to experience the lighting up of the central square Christmas tree and the party around it in the finish area.
