Culture and environment
The cultural program of the Cyclades Trail Cup aims to provide visitors with a unique experience and promote Greece’s archaeology, mythology, traditional music, dance and gastronomy.
CTC also cares about the environment; therefore all events are carefully designed to have the minimum environmental impact.
In addition, during the events, the organizers will provide information on the Cyclades’ natural environment and the significance of recycling.
According to CTC, its goal for 2019 is to eliminate single-use plastic.
