''Kyriakideia 2016'' 10km, 2km and 1km races, October 16
We would like to invite you to take part in the 'Kyriakideia 2016' a 10 km Road Race which will be held on Sunday 16th October 2016 at Statos-Ayios Photios village, Pafos. Parallel events will be a 1 km race for elementary school students and a 2 km race for Gymnasium students.
The event is dedicated to the memory of a local legendary Marathoner Stelios Kyriakides who has won the 50th Boston Marathon in 1946. Kyriakides used his victory as a call to action to aid his war and famine-ravaged homeland. As his victory caused sympathy to Americans and mostly Greeks, he eventually managed to reach an amount of $ 250.000 and two ships with basic necessities (food, clothing and medicine).
The 10 km Road Race course map can be viewed in the Web page http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6425280 and it will start and finish from the Statos - Ayios Photios village square. Start time for the main event is at 10:00 hrs, for the 2 km & 1 km races the start time will be immediately after the main race (10 km Road Race) starts. Registration can be made online at the Web page http://www.stelioskyriakides.com/kyriakideia-16th-october-2… All finishers will receive a commemorative, unique medal and a bottle of wine from the local wineries.
We look forward to seeing everyone at the picturesque village run on Sunday 16th October.
