Leptos Cyprus International 4-Day Challenge 24-27 November 2022

The Leptos Cyprus International 4-day Challenge Event is a staged running event, covering a distance slightly longer than a marathon, which includes road, trail and cross-country running. It is an adventurous and challenging running event with 4 different races taking place during 4 days.

The Event successfully combines a 6k time trial, an 11k mountain trail run, a multi-terrain half marathon distance and a 10k City Run over the four days. It takes place in the area of Paphos and for the most part in the Akamas Nature Reserve Park, in some of Cyprus most scenic routes, where every turn comes with a different stunning view, unfolding the beauty of the AKAMAS Peninsula in a panoramic sea-sky-earth motif.

The Event is Co-organized by Arena Sports in Cyprus and Mike Gratton – an ex London Marathon winner from 2:09 Events in the UK, and is open to Runners of all levels
