OlympusMan O3 is aνone of its kind triathlon race in Cyprus and one of those events that every hardcore triathlete must have in their “bucket list”!
The course runs point-to-point, from the coast of Paphos, through the beautiful Diarizos valley, the vineyards region and thick coniferous forests to, finally, finish on the top of the island, the Olympus peak. OlympusMan is a long day’s challenge through some of Cyprus’s most spectacular scenery.
At the beginning of November the climate of Cyprus offers excellent conditions for such an endeavor! The Mediterranean Sea water is at a perfect 21°C temperature and crystal clear. The air temperature most likely will be at around 22-25°C on the lower sections with an expected 13-14°C on Olympus peak.
The concept here is pretty simple - you start from sea level in Pafos and finish 1952m above sea level, at Olympus peak, in the Troodos Mountain! Epic, isn’t it?
The course is without doubt one of the most challenging Half Iron distances on the planet. An early morning 1.9k swim at Pafos harbor, followed by an 86km bike section with over a staggering 2,600 meters of ascent. The last leg would be an off-road half marathon with 350 meters of ascent gradually spiraling up to the summit of Olympus at 1952 meters.
108,9km total distance | 3000m+ total ascent | 3 sports | 1 target: the summit
Before the light is gone you will be on the top of the mountain. Then you are an OlympusMan!
