    aphrodite half marathon & 5k fun run

    by MrBill Updated Nov 27, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Aphrodite 21k half-marathon and 5k fun run are an excellent excuse to travel to Cyprus if you like to run and do not fancy sitting on the beach your entire holiday.

    The runners club in Nicosia plans and organizes 4-5-6 and 21k runs all over the island between March/April and October/November in Cyprus. Entrance fees are a token CYP5-8 for residents and slightly more for visitors to Cyprus and include a host of goodies like free food and beverage supplied by KEO as well as tee shirts and gym bags for some races. In some cases the registration is free for the fun runs, so there is no excuse not to take part whether you are a serious runner or not?

    This year's half marathon in Pafos was well organized and the weather cooperated to give us a near perfect day. The race is fast. The course quite flat. Starting 4-5 kms east of town the race takes you downtown along the main drag and then west towards the valley of the kings before looping back toward the starting place. Not a particularly challenging race, but a nice one just the same. The 5k run followed some of the same route and ended in the sports stadium where there was live music and entertainment as well as food and beverages.

    The running club (see webpage address) plans other runs throughout the year.
