Crusader Castles Ultra Trail runners were set to continue a series of shorter summer trail runs on Friday night with a “Blue Moon” run above Bellapais to mark July’s second full moon.

Runners were due to set off at 7pm from Ambelia Village for the 10km trek followed by a meal and a relaxing swim.

Four more trail runs are on offer in a “Run Wild Trail Race Series” on different Girne mountain trails from September to December to introduce trail running to a wider audience.
