About Eker I Run Marathon

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 roadtrack and 1st downhill marathon.

Taking the roads on the southern side of Uludag, connecting to Orhaneli Road over the Tuzakli village, the runner reaches to Eker Square. It offers a picturesque containing the shades of green and blue. First 18.7 km of the racetrack is above 1.000 elevation. In the course there are 550 m uphill and 2.230 m downhill tracks. 

There will be water supply points  every 5 km. At the 20 km (900 m elevation, Kirazli Village) supply point, the runners will be able to leave or receive their dresses or accessories. 

Runners can run faster in downhill marathons when compared to plain road runs. Uphill laps and the runs held above sea level (350 m) cause performance losses.
