Limassol – Costas Tsielepis & Co took part last Saturday in this year’s Limassol Marathon with the Tsielepis Running Team demonstrating once again that a healthy mind should go hand in hand with a healthy body.
The members of the Tsielepis Running Team participated in the annual event’s 5Km Corporate Run alongside more than 4.000 participants from 193 companies who despite the drizzling rain flooded the Limassol coastal road to help raise money for local charities.
