Rules and Regulations

1. General Information

Cappadocia Team Games CMT is a relay trail run that takes place along the hills and valleys of the unique Cappadocia region, a UNESCO world heritage site. The distance is about 63,6 km with a variation in altitude of 2030+ m.

The Cappadocia Team Games CMT event is a relay race that is run as a team of 6, including minimum 2 women.  Teams that do not fulfil the team criteria will not be allowed to start.

The first team member will run from the starting point up to the first checkpoint. Each runner will deliver their place to his teammate who will run after him/her at the station he reaches.

Apart from the first runner, other team members will be brought by the organization to the intermediate time point where they will start running. The runners who complete their own sector will be transported from the station they arrive at the race centre by the organization.

Each team member is obliged to complete the sector determined for him/her. If the team of the runner will be withdrawn from the race also the team will be deemed to have withdrawn from the race.

The race starts on October 16, 2021 at 07:00 in Urgup city centre. Participants should finish the route under 12 hours and 30 minutes in a semi-sufficient way, i.e. they should carry equipment that is necessary to ensure the safety of their run for possible weather conditions.
