Selcuk started running in 2008. He raced any distance between 5k to ultramarathons, but he consistently raced half marathons. In 2013, he started racing triathlons and since then finished seven Ironman 70.3 races, and, in 2016, became a gold all world athlete in his age group. Some of his major goals are to race in an Ironman World Championship, a Boston Marathon and a Leadville 100. He strongly believes in enjoying the journey, and respecting the mind and the body. He takes great pleasure in learning and sharing.
