Palechori Morfou community, and a group of enthusiastic volunteers are organizing on Sep 20th a pure trail race called Compressport Palechori Challenge. The FULL amount collected from the registration fees will be donated to charity. The race is one of the three new charity races to be organized for the first time in Cyprus under a series called XM Charity Trail Series.

Two different races will take place on the day, a 7.8km trail race suitable for daring runners who are looking to experience the magic of the mountains and a 21.1km trail race for experienced and passionate trail runners. Both races are considered difficult and, in some case, dangerous therefore they are not suitable for beginners.

For better and safer organization, participation is limited to 100 runners for the 21.1km race and 150 runners for the 7.8km race. All competitors must be over 18yo. Registrations are only available online. A 500m kids fun run, for kids up to 12 years old, will also take place.
