This tough race follows the route of the last 50km of the 80km ultra. It comprises two different 25km loops, the Psilo Dendro loop and the Ayios Nikolaos loop, both of which start and finish in Troodos Square.
Checkpoints/aid stations will be set up about midway along each of the two circular routes, depending on the terrain. Runners will pass through Troodos square, race headquarters and site of the main aid station and checkpoint, at the end of each route. Here they will have the opportunity to refresh themselves and see their supporters, family and friends before starting the next stage of their challenge.
A beautiful description of the geological journey of the ultra-distance routes provided by our partners at Troodos Geopark can be found under Troodos mountain range.
