Cyprus is an island in the Eastern Mediterranean, the third-largest Mediterranean island (after Sicily and Sardinia). It is an independent country (Democratic Republic of Cyprus), a member of the European Union. The currency is the euro. The main language is Greek. However, English is widely spoken, as Cyprus is also a centre of tourism and international business. Anyone you are likely to come in contact with (taxi drivers and people in hotels, restaurants, shops etc.) will speak English. The exception is the North of the country, the self-proclaimed Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, a breakaway statelet that is not recognised by any other country except Turkey. Do not make the mistake of flying to Ercan airport in the North. Until recently it was impossible to cross between North and South; now it is merely tricky. For instance, it is not possible to take a taxi across.
We have created the perfect ultra marathon for one simple reason, we designed a course where the runners are no further than 3 miles from the safety of the main starting area and base camp. A 13.5 mile loop in a figure of eight means a runner can quit at anytime and be picked up by one of our support vehicles within approx 20 minutes of making the call. We want Cyprus Ultra to be a race for everyone. Only the runner’s fitness level and how much they train for an extreme heat trail race will determine who completes the race. Those who do the best on this course are rarely the best runners, we’ve had two test races so far, the runners with a strong mind, able to stay focused in extreme heat, keeping up their calorie intake with gels and electrolytes in temperatures that kill your appetite for anything apart from ice and salt, these were the runners who did the best.
