Join Istanbul Half Marathon

The Istanbul Marathon is one of the fastest marathons in the world. In 2021 Ruth Chepngetich of Kenya set a

new Women's World Half Marathon Record at 1:04:02. This is a perfect event for your new PB.

The Istanbul Half Marathon was first organised in 1987. After several breaks, it was finally brought back to life

in 2015 when the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality and the new sponsor organised the race again. Since

then, the N Kolay Istanbul Half Marathon is a popular destination on the map of the most popular half

marathons in Europe.

The course of this race runs almost entirely on the coast of the Sea of Marmara on the European side of

Istanbul. It is a fast, mostly flat IAAF Gold Label race that takes part annually in April. This guarantees perfect

weather and a chance for a personal best or an easy start to the season after a long winter.

The start and finish lines of the N Kolay 18. Istanbul Half Marathon are located on the coast of Golden Horn in

Balat with its outstanding historical background. Throughout the course, you will have the chance to see the

most remarkable landmarks of İstanbul. First of all, you will see Blue Mosque with all its magnificence, then

you’ll encounter the beautiful Topkapı Palace which hosted the Ottoman Empire for thousands of years, after

these historical beauties you‘ll cross the glamorous Galata Bridge. This and more wait for you in İstanbul.

In addition to these, Istanbul has a lot to offer to tourists. Apart from great weather, especially for those

recovering from a long and cold winter, it has a very exciting and colorful culture and rich history.

Make sure you plan your Istanbul Half Marathon trip to include a few days before or after the race for

sightseeing and enjoying the city.

A few important things to do may include visiting the 8th wonder of the world - Hagia Sophia (Church of the

Holy Wisdom), participating in the

iconic Swirling Dervishes Show or going to the Grand Bazaar (Kapalı Çarşı) in Beyazit.

This city has something to offer for everyone!
