Directions for Kids

In our effort to attract more children to sports, their participation in the kids marathon is free. For children and their escorts to participate, they will each be required to donate 200 & 250 plastic caps respectively or 18 and 24 cans respectively. The plastic caps or cans will then be sold for recycling, the proceeds of which will be donated to charitable institutions and organizations.

Registration is mandatory for all children and escorts. Registration to be finalized between 10 November 2018 to 10 February 2019. The plastic caps or cans need to be donated to the Nicosia Marathon Expo between 20 to 22 February 2019, when collecting the child’s registration number. More information will be published on our website on 1 February 2019.

The kid’s marathon will be held at Strovolos Sports Center on Saturday, 23 February 2019, between 10:00 – 12:00. Only those children who registered on the Nicosia Marathon website during the required registration period will be allowed to participate. Registrations will not be accepted on the day of the marathon, and for safety reasons, children without a registration number will not be allowed to run. Furthermore, parents, escorts and third parties who do not have a registration number for any reason will not be allowed to participate in any marathon either.

Kids marathons are not competitive, they are fun, and they promote human values. Therefore, no-one will be timed and there will be no prize for coming “first”. All children will receive medals at the finish.
