Final Stage of Istanbul Fun Run Series to Bring Together Runners and Skaters in Bebek

The seventh and last race of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality’s (IMM) Fun Run Series will take place this Sunday in Bebek, next to a magnificent view of the Bosphorus. This time, the race will bring together runners and skaters.

The fourth stage of the 2019 Istanbul Fun Run 10K Series, which is also last race of the season, will take place on Bebek’s Coastal Road on Sunday 8 December 2019.

Some 1,000 runners are expected to participate in the race and around 200 athletes will participate in the skating race.

During the race, runners and skaters will enjoy one complete trail all the way from Bebek Park to the finish line.

The race will start from the Bebek Park and the athletes will run along the coastal road by passing through Baltalimanı and Emirgan districts. They will continue onto the İstinye State Hospital. The athletes will then return from İstinye back onto the coastal road and they will pass through Emirgan and Baltalimanı again to complete the race at the starting point in Bebek Park.

The rankings in the race will be measured by electronic chips and the winners will be awarded gift checks as well as a cup.

The Istanbul Fun Run Series of 2019 consists of 7 stages, the first of which was held on International Women's Day earlier this year on March 8. The second race of the series was the Harem Coastal Road Stage 10K, held on July 28, which was followed by the Caddebostan stage on September 6.

The “Fun Run Series” was organized for the first time in Istanbul in 2016.

Above all else, the aim of the run is to draw public’s attention to the fact that smart cities will be made up of individuals who adopt healthy, clean and environmentally friendly lifestyles and to raise awareness about the week.
