Want to experience a true roller coaster ride with an eco footprint?

Join us for our first RUN FOR SEEDS event organized by Petrera Permaculture Land and the Cyprus Seed Savers!

RACES OPTIONS

You can choose between two race distances.

 

  1. The 21K Petrera Half: A challenging yet rewarding route awaits, involving a combination of single-track nature trails, undulating forested paths, traditional village alleys and some exciting cross-country sections! The climbs will be tough, but expect to be rewarded with fantastic panoramic vistas, including the surrounding mountaintops of Mount Olympos, Machairas & Pentadactylos! The route winds across the scenic area surrounding the three villages of Kalo Chorio Orinis, Mitsero and Ayios Epiphanios Orinis. 
  1. The 7K Petrera Herb Route: This route is perfect for the herb enthusiast and may be run or walked – or a combination of the two! An enchanting route takes you through forested trails and paths of blooming seasonal herbs and trees. Be prepared for a perfect balance of up-hills and down-hills, complete with a rewarding panoramic view of the surrounding region.
