SPECIAL: BOOK BEFORE 30th APRIL FOR FREE SEA VIEW ROOM UPGRADE AND 10% OFF RACE ENTRY FEE. 

Paphos and Akamas Forest World Heritage site are beautiful locations for our annual 4-Day Challenge - an excellent mixture of traditional road running and spectacular trail running, which has quickly been recognised as one of the toughest and best organised multi-stage challenges around.

Late November is a fantastic time to travel to Cyprus, with temperatures generally around 22C while Northern Europe starts to feel Winter setting in. 

The races offer a fantastic variety:

  • 6K Individual Time Trial on Thursday evening. It's a relatively short distance and a flat road course, but it is hard to judge the pace correctly when you set off every 10sec gaps in random order. (This race may be shortened to a 5K ifor 2022 depending on the available course options.)
  • 11K Hill Climb race on Friday, which takes you from the seashore in the Akamas National Park in a steady trail climb up to the pretty church at the top of the hill at Pano Arodes
  • Akamas Mixed-Terrain Half-Marathon on Saturday, which must be the most stunning in the world. First you climb up through the Akamas Forest before descending to the coast where the second half of the race winds along with stunning views of the Mediterranean on one side and the hills of the Akamas National Park on the other. it all finishes on the beach close to where the hill race started.
  • Paphos 10K road race on Sunday - the grand finale starts from the ancient harbour castle at Kato Paphos and finishes in a buzz of excitement with music, finishers medals, breakfast snacks and beer. Those who don't feel up to the entire 4-day Challenge can enter the Paphos 10K as an individual race. 

On Sunday evening clients on our packages will be able to enjoy the Celebration Dinner and Prize Giving Evening at the Coral Beach Hotel - great food and a chance to chat about your success with other runners and maybe dance the night away if you still have the energy.

Note: Our packages include all airport and race day transportation and the Gala Dinner - these are extras that you have to pay for individually if are entering direct - as well as a discounted race entry fee. We only offer the transfers and dicounted entry fee to those booking our tour packages.
