RESPECT FOR NATURE: Respect for nature, other people and for ourselves…
Mutual cooperation and solidarity, every move made with love, makes great all moments and organizations we participate in. It is our greatest desire to share all the beauties that will be experienced with runners, volunteers, audiences, local people. From this point of view, we have to take care to fragile nature while competing or working in it. Organizing a race with preserving nature should be our main priority. While the number of activities in nature increases day by day, the number of people participating in such organizations increases at the same rate. Thanks to organizations, athletes from different countries witness natural beauties of Turkey and keep coming over again. For this reason, it is the duty of all of us to preserve nature in any region or country.

RESPECT FOR PEOPLE: The races bring together people from various cultures, personalities and different motivations. It is very important to respect others, to understand that every person can be different and to accept it, not to prevent them, not to disturb them and to be empathetic. At the same time, it is necessary to remember that the region where the race takes place has its own culture and traditions, so to respect it. In fact, every runner commits himself to respect the local population and all people in the region while registering to the race.

SELF RESPECT: Ultra marathons have some risks because they contain long-term physical and mental struggles. Runners should take small risks (if necessary) and know very well where to stop in order to protect their health. Strong bodies that prepared themselves properly for the race will be ready to make ultra distances.  For this reason, we advise the athletes to be trained properly, to have a good rest, to choose the most suitable races for their experience and not to use any drugs. You can finish the race successfully and healthy when the right conditions that you create for yourself meet with the right conditions we create for you.

RESPONSIBILITES AND EQUALITY: Races are open to everyone. Rules apply to everyone in the same way. All athletes have the same conditions, responsibilities and rights. It is our responsibility to guarantee the principle of equality, to make the necessary checks and to provide all participants with the best possible race conditions.

RESULTS AND CATEGORIZATION: Final results or partial results during the race will be announced on marmarisultra.com website. The results will be evaluated according to categories below:
