Cyclades Trail Cup is a series of trail races that aim to promote the Cycladic Islands as a destination for alternative, cultural and athletic tourism. The Cup was established in 2015. In its first year in 2016, it included three races on three islands: Tinos Challenge, Syros City Trail and Andros Trail Race. In 2017, it continued with the addition of Naxos Trail Race, Amorgos Trail Challenge and Donousa Mountain Run.
In its 3rd consecutive year in 2018, Cyclades Trail Cup presents a new set of events in alternative destinations with original routes and exciting cultural experiences! Giving priority to some of the “smaller” Cycladic islands, the 2018 Championship will include 6 races on 6 islands: Kimolos, Folegandros, Ios, Andros, Kythnos and Tinos.
The CTC_2018 schedule:
- 3 June – Kimolos Trail
- 30 June – Folegandros Sunset Trail
- 7-9 September – Ios Adventure
- 29 & 30 September – Andros Trail Race
- 20 & 21 October – Kythnos Challenge
- 1 & 2 December – Tinos Challenge
With the new CTC Point System, every race awards points for the Cyclades Trail Cup. In order for an athlete to be valid, he/she will have to finish at least one (1) race in the whole year, no matter the distance. The winner of every year will be the male & female athlete with largest sum of points.
