Cyprus International 4-Day Challenge 2011

07/12/2011

The 7th edition of the 4-Day Challenge is now an unforgettable memory for both the runners and the organizers, and it is with great pleasure that we saw the participation number increasing from last year, coming to 395 participants in total, with runners of various ages and standards as well as 90 supporters escorting the runners, all from various countries such as UK, Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Slovakia, Ukraine, France, Italy, South Africa, Austria, Norway, Switzerland, USA, and Cyprus.

It was with great pleasure to have amongst our runners, the group of Price Water House and Coopers from Netherlands participating in this year event, with a total of 190 runners. 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 Michael Butter from Netherlands (PWC), who completed the event in 02:54:36 overall male category and by Inge De Jong also from Netherlands (PWC), who completed the event in 03:26:58 overall female category. Both overall winners of the race, received an award from the organizers of the Event, ARENA Sports, in which all expenses such as air ticket, Hotel accommodation, car hire and
participation at the Cyprus International 4-Day Challenge 2011 are covered, totaling cost of €1500.00 for each winner.

In the Team running, the first team was the 2 Logistic Support Regiment RLC-'A Team'from the UK, winning with a cumulative time of 10:58:35
