Introducing an exciting new event on the Cyprus trail running calendar – the Sea-to-Sky Trail Ultra.
The ultra will start on the beach at Alaminos and then head across the hills and mountains up to the highest point on the Troodos mountain range, before dropping down to finish at the Jubilee Hotel. Total distance is about 120-125km (still being mapped out), elevation gain 5500m+
1. Sea-to-Sky Extreme. Runners cover the entire distance within a 28-30 hour period.
2. Sea-to-Sky ‘Tourist’ Challenge. Runners cover the entire distance over two days, overnighting at around the halfway mark and continuing to the finish line the next day. A runner’s times for each day will be added together to determine overall times.
3. Sea-to-Sky Relay: Teams of up to five with changeover points about every 25-30km. This will be part of the extreme race.
4. Three Peaks Challenge. Starting at Palaichori and following the route of the ultra, this is a +-55km standalone race that will take place on November 21. It traverses three peaks: Papoutsa, Madari and Shionistra (Mt Olympus)
