Trail Running Camp
27-28 January 2018
Cyprus Girls Can first sports camp!
We spent a truly magical weekend of exciting trail running through the magnificent Karpasia Peninsula in eastern Cyprus, earlier this year in January! Women from all over Cyprus came together to spend two days exploring one of the most beautiful spots on the island, the Kapasia/Karpaz peninusla :) Our runs took us through a mixture of coastal paths and jeep tracks, winding through farmlands and vast tracts of wilderness and remote coastline. We passed beautiful olive groves, carob plantations, wheat fields and turtle beaches :) Wild Cyprus at its best!
The aim of the weekend was to encourage the women of Cyprus to get out there, get active, have fun, enjoy nature and explore Cyprus! We spent the night at the aptly name Oasis hotel, in Ay Filon, right by the sea :) A great time was had by all and we look forward to welcoming you to our next camp!
This weekend event was one in a series of trail running events we organised for women, which lead up to the Akamas Blossom Festival on the 18th of February, with the aim of increasing female participation in all three races on the day (7km, 21km and 50km).
