RECOMMENDED ACCOMMODATION AT THE START/FINISH
Journalists' Village, Pervolia: 21km from Extreme start at Alaminos
This runner-friendly venue is a good place to check into for Extreme runners. It is close to Larnaca airport and Faros beach is just a few hundred meters away. The apartments have comfortable rooms at reasonable prices, and flexible checkouts are possible.
Bib collection will take place at the Enalia restaurant, which is situated on the premises.
The Enalia restaurant is renowned for its friendliness and traditional Cypriot meals at good prices. It has been voted on TripAdvisor as the No1 restaurant in Pervolia. Kyriakos and Fotini, who run the restaurant, enjoy having runners around, and will be happy to welcome you and assist you with anything you may need.

Transport will be available from Journalists' Village to the start at Alaminos Beach. It is better to leave cars at Journalists’ Village than at the start at Alaminos beach, which will be less secure than the Journalists' Village parking area.
For those who prefer to leave their vehicles at the finish in Troodos, transport will be arranged from Troodos to Enalia on the Friday evening. Likewise, transport will be available from Troodos to the start at Palaichori for the 54km, and to Adventure Mountain Park for the 25km start, on Saturday morning. Runners will be asked if they would like these transport options on the entry forms.
There are other accommodation options near the start of the 130km Extreme race at Alaminos, and near the finish line of all three races in Troodos, but these are our top recommendations, based on the fact that they are known to be runner-friendly
The Jubilee Hotel at Troodos, where all three Sea-to-Sky races finish
This warm and cosy mountain hotel has become a sanctuary for mountain runners wanting a base for trail-running adventures in the Troodos mountains.
It offers good value for money and a welcoming environment for runners, with great advice and tips on hand about the local trails available from Cyprus' Trail Runners representative in Troodos, Andraz Renko, who lives and works at the hotel.
We recommend the Jubilee to runners wanting a friendly, welcoming place to stay in Troodos for the Sea-to-Sky race.
