September 5, 2022 – The annual sports and charity event, “Quantum Nicosia Marathon” that will be held on December 11, 2022, 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, 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 in front of the emblematic Municipal Theater which is the center of culture of the capital.
The week includes a “sports and fitness 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 “Sports Village” with the participation of running and sports clubs.

The Athanasios Ktorides Foundation is the organiser and exclusive sponsor, and the EuroAsia Interconnector is the event’s First Ambassador.

This year’s event will have a special charitable character as all proceeds from the registrations will be donated to the following charities:

• Alkinoos Artemiou Foundation
• Association of Parents and Friends of Children with Heart Diseases
• “Little Heroes”
• Pancyprian Association of Autistic Children
• Nicosia Municipal Multipurpose Community Center
• Mothers and Spouses of National Guardsmen PEMSE

A novelty this year is that through the race registration platform, participants can make a donation to any one or all of the deserving charities and organisations.

The Municipality of Nicosia is co-organiser of the event and accompanying us on this journey are the Municipalities of Strovolos, Aglantzia and Engomi.
Friends of the Foundation, and volunteers, include the Dromea Racing running club, the National Guard and ELDYK.

So get ready to #RunNicosia on 11-12-22.
