Cyprus Embassy and Friends 2023

Run with us

Following the successful launch of the initiative at last year’s Helsinki Marathon (2022), we are delighted to extend an open invitation to friends of Cyprus and of our Embassy from all over Finland, as well as to their family members, to join team ‘Cyprus Embassy and Friends’ for the 2023 Helsinki Marathon, scheduled to take place on Saturday, 19 August!

We are proud to announce the renewal of our partnership with Gavrielides Foods, who have graciously agreed to sponsor the team’s participation for the second year running.

Registration for the Helsinki Marathon as a member of our team is possible for any of the routes/distances on offer (full distance marathon, half-marathon, 10km, kids run 500/1000m), as well as for the relay (4x10.55k). All the relevant information is available through the Helsinki Marathon website.

By joining team ‘Cyprus Embassy and Friends’, you will automatically be entitled to the following benefits:

― discounted registration fee (close to 25% off applicable rates),

― a complimentary, commemorative team running-shirt (ordered to size),

― an invitation to a pre-race briefing and barbecue for team members to be held a week before the event, and

— a gift bag with Cyprus goodies.

If you are up for the challenge, get in touch with us by phone on (+358) 9 6962820 or email at for more information and for further instructions on how to proceed with your registration as a member of the team.

We look forward to hearing from you and to welcoming you to the team!



For a good cause

We promise a fun day out on August 19th, plus it’s all for a good cause, as we shall try through the team’s effort to raise money through donations for the Disaster Relief Fund of the Finnish Red Cross. Donations can be made by anyone wishing to support the team's effort, directly to the Finnish Red Cross through our dedicated fundraising page on their website, or by scanning the QR code below:
