The Salomon Cappadocia Ultra-Trail race kicked off on Saturday in Turkey's scenic Cappadocia region.

More than 2,000 runners from over 75 countries are participating in the race which will run from October 20-21.

Participants run on three different tracks: ultra (119 kilometers), medium (63 km), and short trail (38 km).

The race takes place along the unique fairy chimneys and valleys of the Cappadocia region, a UNESCO world heritage site.  

Aydin Ayhan Guney, the event organizer, said that the number of runners rose by 25 percent this year compared to a year earlier.

The race will give more points to runners in this year as it reached the Pro-Level category of Ultra-Trail World Tour in its fifth iteration, Guney said.
