We are on the Track with Half Marathon Runners!

Vodafone İstanbul Half Marathon, which was promoted to the Golden Category by the World Athletics and entered the list of the 8 Best Half Marathons in the world, will be run on Sunday, September 20, 2020 by 2,500 half marathon runners with the unique view of the Historical Peninsula. The Half Marathon, which will last for 2 hours in the peninsula with a history of approximately 8 thousand years, will break new records this year!


According to the decisions taken within the scope of the New Normal Period Precautions at the Vodafone İstanbul Half Marathon, which will take place on September 20, 2020, we will be able to take the track with 2,500 Half Marathon/21K runners. 

We will not be able to see our 10K runners at the starting point on the morning of September 20.

We wholeheartedly believe that you, our esteemed runners who value their health, will understand our decision during the current period.


While we were preparing the activities with wide participation in the new normal period, we had to go into restrictions in categories and number of people in accordance with the criteria of “Covid-19 Mass Activities Guide” published by the World Health Organization (WHO).

From the number of people per square meter at the starting point to the arrangement in the waiting area, we would like to share with you the practices and decisions taken with each detail.

Virtual Run

We are continuing our preparations on ‘Virtual Run’, that is, the virtual half marathon, which allows all runners who cannot be with us on the Half Marathon track to run on the same destination on whichever track they want. When our preparations are completed, we will share all the details with you and invite you all to run on the same track you set at the same weekend by saying #benimparkurum (my track).

Charity Run

Charity run is a method of successful fundraising used to support non-governmental organizations (NGOs) all over the world. With this half marathon that we have implemented as a charity run in cooperation with Adım Adım, you can collect donations for the NGO you wish and raise awareness by drawing attention to a social issue that you wish to be solved.
