2017 Cyprus Ultra sees the introduction of a new race distance of 100 km.
If you are looking to step up your training and set yourself a big goal for 2017, this could be the race for you.
3500 meters of total elevation gain, coupled with the extreme hills and extreme high temperatures of Cyprus, makes for a huge ultra running challenge. Even if you've done longer distances (100 miles +), Cyprus Ultra 100 km will still challenge even the most accomplished trail ultramaratoner.

Maximum number of participants will be capped at 200, the 10 km and 21 km races will of course take most of these places.

Self-defense in Cyprus that's designed for everyone. No longer just for the young and active children who get sent to martial arts classes by their parents. For the first time in Cyprus we now have a non martial art self defense programme that designed for everyone, young, old, disabled, couples and even mother and daughter classes. Simply anyone who wants to fully understand the reality of how better to protect themselves in the event of a real life street attack or home invasion and not waste time spending years learning traditional martial arts which is useless in reality of being attacked when you least expect it on the street by multiple assailants. You don't need a black belt for self-defense, you need a simply and easy to apply offense. Any technical moves that look and appear to work in a dojo is just going to be too difficult to pull off under the adrenal state of fear which leaves all of us with only basic gross motor skills when attacked by surprise with life threatening violence.
V1 FITNESS self-defense programme can be mastered in as little as 10 weeks. Unlike martial art schools that replies on keeping students for many years as they go through their grading and belts, the self-defense programme at V1 FITNESS does not follow any such model, it simply teaches what is essential to have the confidence and skill to defend yourself and protect your family and home in a REAL LIFE scenario in which your life may be at stake.
