Before You Go

About Turkey

Things you need to know


Q.1 Can I transfer or defer my registration if I am unable to make it ? Open or Close

Unfortunately this race does not have any provision to transfer the race entry if you are unable to participate for any reason.

Q.2 Is it possible for me to buy just the race entry and make my own accommodation arrangements? Open or Close

As Tour Operators, we are required to sell the race entry along with accommodation. Our contract with the race does not permit us to sell a stand-alone race entry.

Q.3 I have got the race entry through Ballot/ Charity, can I buy the accommodation from Active Holiday Company? Open or Close

Yes, it is possible for you to stay with our marathon group if you already have the entry or if you are travelling with a non-running companion. However, please note that this will be at the same hotel as the rest of the group travelling on our package.

Q.4 I am a solo traveller, is it possible for me to find someone to share my room with? Open or Close

We have several single runners interested in sharing a room with another runner and, wherever possible, we try to pair up people who have requested rooms on twin share. However, please keep in mind that this is not a guarantee and in some cases you might be required to take a single supplement. If you have a friend who is already on the group you'd like to share your room with please let us know your preference at the time of making the booking so we can pair you together.

Q.5 Will my travel insurance cover the cancellation fee in case of cancellation - cancelled by me or on the event organisers part? Open or Close

Most Indian insurance providers cover a very small part of the cancellation fee. The exact coverage will be detailed in the conditions of your insurance policy and we encourage you to check whether you can make a claim with them directly.
