Runners will need head lamps for the start of the race but will be assisted before dawn by the moon (provided, of course, that it is not cloudy). Checkpoints/aid stations will be set up about midway along each of the three circular routes, depending on the terrain. Runners will pass through Troodos square, race headquarters and site of the main aid station and checkpoint, at the end of each route. Here they will have the opportunity to refresh themselves and see their supporters, family and friends before starting the next stage of their challenge.
