10k race has a 90 minute cut off time. Walk, hike or run!
CAUTION: This is a race across very hilly mountain trails with a total elevation gain of approx 200 meters.
For the very fit runners wanting a real running challenge, the entire route is 100% runnable.
You will need to bring your own electrolytes and sports drinks etc. We only supply cold water stations with the usual mix of fruit and sugary snacks.
Pre chilled water is provided at approx 1 km, 1.2 km and 7 km and 8.5 km on the course by means of a hand water pump. You must carry your own sports water bottle. After seeing the devastating effects on the environment, we will no longer be using plastic cups or water bottles at Cyprus Ultra Marathon. See Recommended Gear.
The route is very green this year due to the exceptional winter rains that we had, many new beautiful flowers have led to increase in bee activity in certain parts of the course. If you have a known history of allergic reactions to bee stings, you must contact the race director Michael Rivers before race day via email at [email protected]
