Derbent Trail Run
Derbent Trail is a short trail run. Participants should carry some mandatory equipment.
Derbent Trail is the last split of the Iznik Ultra Marathon. Starts from partly preserved Derbent Village, until "Kan Çiçekleri" (Blood Flowers) field, follows
the village streets and some tarmac and dirt roads. At this point you will find yourself next to Kirec Hill, follows dirt roads, wide trails and some single track sections,
mostly descending with some unexpected climbs. Bottom of the descent lays Dirazali Village. Last 4km section is tarmac and cobblestone pavement, touring histroric Iznik center
before the finish line.
No aid or water stations on the course. There is one trail fountain after "Kan Çiçekleri" (Blood Flowers) field, some other fountains also in Dırazali Village. We advise
foreigners to use portable filtration or better carry enough fluid and foods on course. It is also strongly advised to use poles for the fast-hikers.
