PASYKAF, Agios Theodoros community, and a group of enthusiastic volunteers with the avid support and guidance of Compressport Cyprus and Compressport International are organizing the first annual Compressport Atsas Mountain Race. With scenic trails and breathtaking views the organization aims to deliver a safe and high fun factor event not to be missed by the passionate trail runner, and all these for a good cause. The full amount collected from the registration fees will be donated to PASYKAF on race day.
Two different races will take place, a 7.1km trail race suitable for novice but daring trail runners and a 21.1km (half marathon) trail race for experienced and passionate trail runners. For better and safer organization, participation is limited to 100 runners per race and registrations are only available online. A 500m kids fun run, for kids up to 12 years old, will also take place.
The Start/Finish Area is located on a picnic area right in the centre of the village on the banks of river Atsas. (see pictures below)
There is a large parking area located just minutes away from the Start Area in an old football pitch. Once you enter the village clear signage will guide you straight to the parking area.
A full medical team will be based at the Start/Finish Area consisting of a Doctor, a Physiotherapist and a Nurse. At key points, along the trail, volunteers of ETEA will be available and ready to offer medical first aid if required. A road ambulance will also be located at the Start/Finish Area.
Snacks, coffee, and cold drinks will be available for free at the Start/Finish Area. Toilets are also located at the Start/Finish Area.
A 500m kids fun run for children up to 12 years old will take place. Furthermore a face painter and inflatable toys will be located at the Start/Finish area.
Unfortunately, there is no accommodation in Agios Theodoros, but the comsopolitan village of Kakopetria is just 16minutes away driving where you can find a number of hotels and guest houses.
