Leptos Group Sponsors the Cyprus International 4-Day Challenge 2014

27/11/2014
The 10 years of the Cyprus International 4 day challenge event was celebrated from 20-23 November 2014. The 10th edition of the Event is now an unforgettable memory for both the runners and the organizers. Participation has increased to 230 runners of various ages and standards all from various countries such as UK, Netherlands, Germany, Russia, Belgium, Italy, South Africa, Austria, Norway, Switzerland, Cyprus, and for the first time participation from Japan. Supporters and escorts participation was also higher this year.

For one more year, highlights of the event were the 11k Hill Run on day 2 of the race & the Half Marathon Multiterrain Run on day 3 of the race, both of which took place in the AKAMAS Nature reserve. The 1/2 marathon started from Neo Chorio - Smigies Picnic Area, finished on the Beach of Toxeftra and took runners on one of the most scenic & spectacular routes on our island, if not on Europe.

The 11k Hill Run, started close by Toxeftra Beach, finished by the beautiful village square / church of Pano Arodes, and took runners on a climb where steep ascends took turns with short, sharp descents, to give a final gain of altitude of over 600m through alternating landscapes, including a forest, a moonscape like valley and vineyards!!! Both AKAMAS routes on day 2 & 3 as well as the time trial on the first day and the 10k Paphos

City Run on the last day, were dominated by Ben Livesey from Great Britain, who completed the event in 02:48:40 overall male category and by Annabel Levene also from Great Britain who completed the event in 03:48:28 overall female category. In the Team challenge, overall winner was the Run & Fun 1 team with runners from Germany and Switzerland, winning with a cumulative time of 09:31:43.

Apart from all the runners who honored us with their participation in the Cyprus International 4-day Challenge, we would also like to say a big thank you to all our sponsors, the Cyprus Tourism Organization, ANT1, Cyprus Airways, the Leptos Group, the Coral Beach Hotel & Resort, Rock FM, Europcar Rentals, Paphos & Peyeia Municipalities, Keo, the Iasis Hospital and Phoenix Ambulance Services, who made the whole organization such a success.
