There will be no Akamas Blossom races in 2023.
But the beautiful Akamas will always be there, and we will celebrate spring at a non-competitive and very social Akamas Trail Running Festival weekend in early April (date to be finalised) using the routes of the Akamas Blossom races.
Akamas Blossom Trail Running Festival
A weekend of running, great views and making friends
Cyprus Trail Runners has stopped organising races, preferring to focus on exploring our beautiful island on more relaxed social runs. The Akamas Blossom Trail Running Festival will now be a social weekend running festival using the scenic 38km and 24km Akamas Blossom race courses with a few adaptations and short cut options to include runners of all abilities.
The early April 2023 weekend (date to be finalised) will include a short Friday evening warm-up run, a longer Saturday run and a Sunday morning run which will finish by lunch time!
The 38km course takes runners to the the remote western tip of the island, Cape Anaroutis, and to both coasts of the Peninsula via the lighthouse on the hill.
The 24km course takes in some of the most beautiful single-track trails in the Akamas, including the descent of the Aphrodite with probably the best views of the Mediterranean in Cyprus.
Details of the Akamas trail running weekend will follow, but meanwhile contact us at email@example.com if you are interested.
THE APHRODITE BEACH HOTEL
YOUR AKAMAS HOME FROM HOME
Gregoria Efthyvoulou, the genial manager of the Cyprus Aphrodite Beach Hotel, has always welcomed trail runners at her hotel and was our host for the Akamas Blossom races for many years.
The family-run hotel's seaside setting is the perfect place to relax with a beer with family and friends after a day out running the trails. Renowned for its friendly and homely atmosphere, it also offers an array of delicious meals, including for vegetarians and vegans.
