N Kolay Istanbul Marathon virtual run registrations have not been opened yet. You can follow us in order to access the most up-to-date information about our runs.

10 ITEMS YOU NEED TO CONSIDER BEFORE VIRTUAL RUN!

Technical development work on the application will continue until Saturday so that you will not experience any problems during the virtual run. Make sure you have the updated version of the app before you run.

Log in to the SWEATers application with your ticket number, participate in the event in the category you selected in the application. In order not to encounter any technical problems when you start your virtual run at the weekend, it will be helpful to try the application by logging into the test run event in your SWEATers application.

You can complete your virtual run at any time on the specified dates, but you must finish it once you start the run in your SWEATers app. You don’t have the option to stop or pause your run.

Working with GPS data, the SWEATers application will use at least 30% of your phone battery during your run. So make sure it’s fully charged before you start your run.

Make sure that the place you call #MyTrack, the area you will run, is an area where you can receive GPS signals and that the location information on your phone is turned on. You also need to allow the sharing of location information in the SWEATers app.

WARNING: SWEATers does not measure indoors or on the treadmill!

If your operating system is iOS;

In iOS 14, the approximate location setting must be turned on so that the route can be calculated precisely.

If a bag is to be used while running, for iOS devices, keeping your phone in the pocket or on the arm, not inside the bag, would perceive movement better and give more accurate result in the location calculation.

If you open the application on your iOS device and close the application after starting your run, the distance will not be calculated correctly. You should not close the application by swiping up.

If your operating system is Android;

On Huawei devices, Application Launch > SWEATers must be disabled in Settings. We will update manually.

If you are using a 2020 Huawei device, you should run with your preferred application and send the screenshots to info@sweatersapp.com. We will manually update it for you.

For all kinds of problems related to Virtual Run, you can reach us from the WhatsApp Virtual Run Support Line at 05498065801 between 09:00-18:00.

You can also request support regarding all kinds of technical issues related to your SWEATers application from info@sweatersapp.com. Remember, you are not alone in the virtual run on November 7-8!

When you finish your running distance, you should see the text “Congratulations! Your result is successfully shared with Spor Istanbul” on your screen. You can find the details of the result in the “My Results” section on the profile screen of the event.spor.istanbul website. However, after closing and reopening the application, you will not see the results screen again.

After completing your run, don’t forget to take a selfie with your medal and your t-shirt with the name of your race course and share it on social media with the hashtag #benimparkurum and tag @marathonistanbul! We look forward to your sharing!

NOTE: You can write the name of your track on the back of your t-shirt with any pen.
