NEXT RACE: MARCH 21, 2020
New start/finish venue: Aphrodite Beach Hotel
Entries open on November 1, 2019
Welcome to the official site of the Akamas Blossom Trail Running Festival, which will be held on Spring Day, March 21, 2020, in the beautiful Akamas Pensinsula, west Cyprus.
Runners will have a choice of four races -- 58km, 35km, 23km and a family fun run of 5km -- each of which winds through spectacular coastal countryside, when the spring flowers will be at their zenith.
Due to the new start and finish venue, the Aphrodite Beach Hotel, races will be a little longer than those held previously. Distances given above are for now approximate and still need to be finally measured.
Those tackling the 58km and 35km races will follow a loop that takes them to the most picturesque -- and most remote -- parts of the peninsula, including Fontana Amorozo, Cape Anaroutis (the western tip of Cyprus) and the lonely lighthouse on the hill.
The shorter races variously follow the Adonis and Aphrodite trails, as well as many of the unnamed trails that criss-cross the Akamas Peninsula.
No matter what the distance, runners are in for a special springtime treat.
More details to follow shortly -- meanwhile save the date!
