TWO CASTLES AND AN ABBEY TRAIL ULTRA-CYPRUS
This is an 80km trail running adventure through the Kyrenia mountain range, taking in two Crusader castles and ending at ancient Bellapais Abbey.
Starting just before sunrise at the magnificent 13th century Kantara Crusader Castle, the route follows jeep and forest tracks and rocky trails westwards through the Kyrenia mountain range in Cyprus, passing Alevkaya herbarium, the abandoned Sourp Magar monastary and the Five Fingers peaks on the way to Buffavento Crusader Castle. From there it is up and over the ridge and finally down to the finish at Bellapais Abbey, overlooking the charming harbour town of Kyrenia.
The course takes in pine forests, rocky ridges, tricky trails, and sweeping vistas of the Mediterranean coast and hamlets way down below. This is a trail run in the rugged tradition of taking care of all one's needs along the way -- there will be a few checkpoints and refuelling stops along the way but you will need to carry your own water between these refreshment stations.
