Registration points will be set up in Fethiye, Calış, Hisarönü, Ovacık, Üzümlü and Dalyan and will be open for registrations by early September.

This year we have 500 registration packs and our aim is not to have a single one left.


The t-shirts are being redesigned and are turquoise. This is now the permanent color for Yaşam İçin Yarış and the basis of the brand. They are currently being made by a local company, Mutlu Bayrak, and will be available from the registration points.

Let’s not forget why we hold this event…

All money raised will be used to support the funding of cancer research, raising awareness  and cancer treatment in Turkey.

Last year, ten-year-old Ela from Üzümlü tok part in the race after undergoing 14 sessions of chemotherapy.

Let’s make this years event the biggest and best yet!
