The BUFF® Troodos Mountain Ultra was born out of a desire to introduce runners from around the world to Cyprus, the undiscovered trail running paradise in the Mediterranean. The island has an excellent climate with an average of 326 days of sunshine a year, and spectacular natural areas to explore from mountains and valleys dotted with small traditional villages to fertile plains and rocky coastal paths.
The race is organized by One Step Further Ltd, an outdoor activities company that organizes a variety of outdoor activities for children and adults all over Cyprus and abroad. The course is designed and managed by Cyprus Trail Runners, an enthusiastic non-profit group which organizes trail runs and races across the island year-round. The team is committed to offering runners and their families a truly unique overall experience in Troodos and in Cyprus, since the major cities, the beach and landmarks are at close proximity.
