All Cyclades Trail Cup events have always cultural side events in order to offer all visitors a full and unique experience. Every event will promote sports and cultural experiences like archaeology, mythology, music, dance, gastronomy etc. 

Always thinking about the environmental impact, all events in every destination are thoughtfully designed. Organizers are educating locals and visitors about the mountains, sea and recycling. The main goal for 2019 is to fully stop ‘one use plastics‘.
