Leptos Estates sponsors the “Cyprus International 4-Day Challenge 2015”

The 11th edition of the “Cyprus International 4 day challenge” is now an unforgettable memory for both the runners and the organizers.

This year participation increased to 250 runners of various ages and standards, all from various countries such as UK, Netherlands, Germany, Russia, Belgium, Czech Republic, Italy, Japan, USA, Canada Austria, Norway, Switzerland, Cyprus, and for the first time participation from Malaysia.

Supporters and escorts participation was also higher this year.

Once again, this year highlights of the event were the 11k Hill Run on day 2 of the race & the Half Marathon Multiterrain Run on day 3 of the race, both of which took place in the Akamas Nature reserve.

The 1/2 marathon started from the square of Neo Chorio village and finished on the Beach of    Toxeftra and took runners on one of the most scenic & spectacular routes on our island, if not in Europe.

The 11k Hill Run, started close by Toxeftra Beach, and finished by the beautiful village square / church of Pano Arodes, and took runners on a climb where steep ascends took turns with short, sharp  descents, to give a final gain of altitude of over 600m through alternating landscapes, including a forest, a moonscape-like valley and vineyards!!!

Both Akamas routes on day 2 & 3 as well as the time trial on the first day and the 10k Paphos City Run on the last day, were dominated by Ben Livesey from Great Britain, who completed the event in 02:59:31 overall male category and by Martina Taska from Czech Republic who completed the event in 03:43:38 overall female category.

In the Team Challenge, overall winner was the Deepcut Station Males, a team with runners from the UK, winning with a cumulative time of 10:16:26.

Apart from all the runners who honoured the event with their participation in the Cyprus International 4-day Challenge, a big thank you goes to all sponsors, Leptos Estates, the Cyprus Tourism Organization, the Coral Beach Hotel & Resort, Rock FM, Europcar Rentals, Keo, Iasis Hospital and Phoenix Ambulance Services, who made the whole organization such a success. Also thanks due to the various authorities, Paphos Police, the Forestry department, the Municipality of Neo Chorio, the Municipality of Arodes Village, the Environmental Authorities, the Archaeological department and Air Vac helped in their own way to the success of the event.
