Practicing the sport that you love or training for a big event takes on a magical appeal in Cyprus, laced with an incredible network of trails calling out to all running enthusiasts. The short distances between country and coast add to the exciting experience, whether taking on an uphill challenge, running a good bend, or enjoying a downhill sprint. And around every corner, the island’s multi-layered past jumps to life, as myths and legends entice the curious at heart in a landscape dressed in a fine patchwork of vivid green and golden-brown hues.

Cyprus has also become a popular hot-spot for international marathons, with local and international runners perfecting their stride turnover in the most thrilling events across beautiful parts of the country.  The mythical birthplace of the Ancient Greek Goddess of love and beauty sets the perfect scene for the annual races taking place in Pafos, while Cyprus’ most hip and happening cosmopolitan seaside hub, Lemesos, plays host to another race which lures thousands of athletes and excited spectators every year. All things contemporary perfectly fuse with historic city tales in the island’s capital during running events taking place there, while Larnaka gets hearts and runners racing by palm fringed promenades.

Not just about serious sport, all marathon race organisers are keen on giving international athletes and spectators alike the chance to enjoy vibrant outdoor cultural entertainment and plenty of Mediterranean-inspired fun, post-race.
