Limassol Marathon 2019 A Huge Success for Lizards Team

On the weekend of 23-24th March 2019, the annual Limassol Marathon once again took place along the beautiful Limassol coast and the Lizards were there in large numbers to take part in our home town’s greatest running event!

On Day 1, there were very large number of runners in attendance this year, and even the children’s races were crowded and the organisers will be addressing this next year by introducing more categories and better management of crowds at the start line.

Despite all the challenges, our Lizards fought hard and despite getting tripped up and squeezed out in some instances, our youngsters still got us a fantastic 10 podium positions in the Youth Races:

Under 9 boys
1st Yosef
3rd Ioannis
4th Achilleas

Under 9 girls
2nd Katerina

10-13 boys
2nd Rafael

10-13 girls
2nd Georgie

14-16 boys
2nd Marios
3rd Antonis

14-16 girls

1st Anna
2nd Veronika
3rd Annabel

Day 2 also brought some great results for the team, with the Lizards getting all 3 podium places in the Girls U19s 5km race:

1st – Irene Christou
2nd – Cara Branton
3rd – Zara Meaby

We were also delighted that one of our newer team members Vitaly Dudov came 3rd overall in the Mens’ Cyprus National Championship.

Congratulations to all our athletes who took part and also big thanks to the many Lizard Team volunteers who helped out at the event throughout the weekend, handing out water and helping the organisers. We hope to see you all again soon at the upcoming running events across the island!
