The Garmin Troodos Green Race has become a favourite for many runners because of the challenging course and the beauty of where it is set. The 15-km long race, which runs through the Troodos paths of nature, is unique with a breathtaking view as it takes place at the highest altitude in Cyprus! The aim of the event is to raise awareness towards protecting Cyprus' forests as well as creating opportunities for social sport in the nature. The course covers a rough terrain over the Artemis Trail and the more difficult Atalanti Trail. The runners will have the opportunity to run through beautiful black pine forests and across various kinds of rock formations.
More info and registrations from the website of Dro.Me.A Racing Running Club who organise the race.
15 Km run course
The course is under revision - final course will be announced soon
In a relatively small and without significant technical difficulties course, you will have the opportunity to run between the pine trees of the Troodos forest with its wonderful smells of blossoms and flowers.
The course starts from Troodos square and follows an asphalt route for approximately 500 metres and then enters a forest path and especially built for the race track.
The uphill sections have a very low inclination, which would turn running into a real pleasure. The finish line is at Troodos square.
