Thousands to Run in Vodafone 41st Istanbul Marathon on Sunday

Countdown for the Vodafone 41st Istanbul Marathon has begun with the Marathon and Sports Fair at the Eurasia Performance and Arts Center in Yenikapı, to be held between October 31 and November 2.

Organized by the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality’s subsidiary company Sports Inc., the transcontinental marathon’s tagline will be “Istanbul is yours, go for it!”

Although the registration period for the marathon has ended on September 30, but the organizers are offering a second chance for runners to sign up from October 31 to November 2 at the Marathon and Sports Fair, in exchange for donations to charities.

The marathon primarily aims to attract runners who will compete for charities.

The Sports Fair will bring together prominent sports brands from Turkey and abroad, NGOs, public enterprises, and domestic and foreign marathon clubs. Stage shows, seminars, visual and sports activities will offer visitors a festive atmosphere.

Some 37,000 chipped runners from 106 countries and all across Turkey will participate in the 41st edition of the race. Thousands of Istanbulites who have signed up for the marathon will collect their race kits from the Sports Fair.
