Turkey’s Lycian Way Ultra Marathon

Packed with enchanting history and challenging natural features, the Lycian Way Ultra Marathon sends adventure-seeking runners through an ancient land along Turkey’s southern-facing Mediterranean coastline in the far southeastern corner of Europe. While the 509K Lycian Way is routinely listed among the top hikes in the world—along with the Inca Trail, the Camino de Santiago and the Ultra-Tour du Mont-Blanc—the Lycian Way Ultra Marathon covers half of that distance (roughly 155 miles) in six stages from Fethiye to Antalya. Ultras often take us to remote places, but the Lycian Way Ultra also takes you back to remote times as the race route crosses several ancient cities and monuments. (The 2016 Lycian Way Ultra Marathon is scheduled for Sept. 23–Oct. 2. For more information, go to Likyayoluultramaratonu.com.)
