The registration date of the Vodafone 20th Istanbul Half Marathon, which will be held on Sunday, September 2020, 15, has been extended until August 17 to offer participants the opportunity to change categories.
Vodafone Istanbul Half Marathon, organized by Spor Istanbul, a subsidiary of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (IMM), is getting ready to start for the 15th time. The registration dates of the event to be held in the Historic Peninsula, one of the most special tracks in the world, were arranged. Due to the fact that the 10-kilometer runs will not be held this year, the registration date has been extended until August 17 to offer the athletes who have applied in this category the opportunity to run a half marathon. Thus, participants who want to test themselves will be able to run on the 21-kilometer track.
The event, which has a place in the sports culture of the city, is run by restricting people within the framework of pandemic measures. Vodafone Istanbul Half Marathon, which was promoted to the Gold Category by World Athletics and entered the list of the best 8 Half Marathon in the world, will be run by limiting the number of people within the framework of pandemic measures. The athletes will compete according to the "Covid-19 Mass Events Guide" criteria published by the World Health Organization (WHO).
Due to the pandemic, it will run in a single track
In the Vodafone Istanbul Half Marathon, the 10-kilometer runs will not take place this year due to pandemic measures. The event, which is limited to 2 athletes, will run a 500-kilometer track. The event, where all measures are taken to protect the health of athletes and every detail is considered, has one of the flattest and fastest tracks in the world. Vodafone Istanbul Half Marathon, which will be run with the unique view of the Historic Peninsula, offers every runner the opportunity to make their best with its route with no altitude difference. Vodafone Istanbul Half Marathon, which increases the brand value of Istanbul and has an important place for the promotion of the city at the international level, is also a preparation for the marathon to be held in November.
