Enchanting history

Therefore the course passes through antique remains, cities, forts and amphitheaters. As if in a time tunnel, competitors experience mystical nights at the camps in the midst of ruins.

Unique natural beauties

Lycian Way is unique with its natural surroundings as well as its historical texture. The course offers yet another visual feast on each altitude with mountains covered with green forests meeting the most beautiful bays of Turkey. It will be unforgettable to have the privilege to run on Patara beach, the 3rd longest beach in the world and camping in Patara antique city.

The route of Lycian Way Ultra Marathon which is supported by Ministry of Culture and Tourism of Turkish Republic every year since 2010 is prepared by Prof. Dr. TanerDamcı, the race director who has completed many difficult international ultra-marathons himself.
