Rules and Regulations

Cappadocia Team Games CST 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 38 km with a variation in altitude of 1120+ m.

The Cappadocia Team Games CST event is a relay race that is run as a team of 3 consisting of minimum 1 woman member. 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 and will carry the GPS tracker. Each runner will deliver the tracking device 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 If the team of the runner will be withdrawn from the race also the team will be deemed to have withdrawn from the race.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 10:00 in Urgup city centre. Participants should finish the route under 7 hours 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.
