This trail running festival was originally scheduled for March 21, but due to the restrictions imposed by the Cypriot authorities on events of all kinds due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we have postponed it to Saturday, October 3, 2020.
All those who entered and paid for the March event will automatically be transferred to the start list for the October 3 races unless we are advised otherwise, in accordance with the emails we have sent to all entrants.
Entries for the three longer races — the 60km, 38km, and 24km — will reopen on Monday, August 3, 2020.
Entries for the 5km fun run will be taken on the day.
The races start and finish at the Aphrodite Beach Hotel.
The 60km race has been awarded 3 ITRA/UTMB points, the 38km race has been awarded 2 points, and the 24km has earned 1 point.
Starting and finishing at the friendly Aphrodite Beach Hotel brings many advantages for runners, especially for those staying there:
• Registration and race briefings take place in a venue close to the start line
• Family and friends can relax on the veranda overlooking the finish line, watching the runners coming in
• Changing and showering facilities will be available
The Aphrodite Beach Hotel is offering discounted rates for all runners. Tell them you are coming for the race when booking.
The 60km race takes runners on a grand tour of one Cyprus’s most beautiful natural areas, including to the western tip of the island, and to both the north and south coasts of the Akamas Peninsula.
The 38km race is the first section of the 60km route, and the 24km race the last section.
Prizes are awarded to the top three overall finishers as well as to the top three woman finishers in all the races. All runners completing their races will receive a finisher’s award.
