The Omodos Cross Xenion Race was organised for the first time 3 years ago by the “The Xenios Xenofontos Charity foundation” and has proven to be an extremely successful event ever since. For the past 3 years, Orasis Photo Club has been supporting the Omodos Cross Xenion Race which takes place in Omodos by capturing the event through our member's lenses and providing the photographs to the organizers free of charge.
This charity race is held in loving memory of Xenios Xenofontos, (the brother of our dear member Maria Xenofontos who is also a Founding Member of the club) who sadly passed away from cancer.
This event is held in cooperation with the the Municipal Council of Omodos, Periklis Demetriou, Dro. Me. A Racing and Omodos High School with the aim to raise money for underprivileged students of Omodos High School.
Taking a look back to 2015, being asked to be a part of this worthy cause was an honor and a privilege. Our club was also newly founded at the time and this was an exciting opportunity for us to get involved with some sports photography and learn from the more experienced members.
If you would like to see the photos taken from this year as well as the previous years where we covered the event, please visit our albums on our Facebook Group as well as the Omodos Cross Xenion Page where our members shared their photos directly.
Thank you once again to the organisers for providing us with this opportunity to help by using a medium we are so passionate about - photography.
