Join Eker I Run Marathon 2022

Eker I Run Marathon is a road marathon, starting from the elevation of 1793 m in the Uludag hotels zone, downhill to the Eker Square (117 m elevation). It is Turkey’s 5th road track and 1st downhill marathon.

Taking the roads on the southern side of Uludag, connecting to Orhaneli Road over the Tuzakli village, the runner reaches Eker Square. The route offers picturesque views of the surrounding mountains. The first 18.7 km of the racetrack is above 1.000m elevation. The course is  550m uphill and 2.230 m downhill commutative. 

There will be water supply points every 5 km. At the 21 km (located at 900m elevation, Kirazli Village) supply point, the runners will be able to leave or receive their drop bag (personal garments, food, etc.) 

Runners can run faster in downhill marathons when compared to level road runs. Uphill laps and the runs held above sea level (350 m) cause performance losses. Eker I Run Uludag Marathon is run at the average elevation of 914 m through 42.195 m. Its first 10km is run over 1.500 m elevation while the final 10k is run below 300 m elevation. Let alone the first 2 km and minor uphill, it totally consists of downhill, rendering the sensation of running at a high elevation minimum. 

2022 will be 9th edition of the event, 3rd of the maraton distance.
