Event Area

Our event area has been meticulously designed so that athletes can easily maintain their social distance. We kindly ask our athletes to pay attention to the colour codes on the floor stickers, signs and chest numbers, and consult our staff or volunteers for any questions.
Due to pandemic and hygiene measures, our sponsor brands will not hold special events. Marathon Expo also will not be held due to the same reason.
Athletes must continue to keep their masks on until the race starts, including the warm-up, preparation and entry stages.

Istanbul Marathon is one of the best racecourses in Europe!
According to the criteria set by the International Association of Athletics Federations, only 9 marathons will be run in the Gold Label category in Europe. The Istanbul Marathon, which deserves to be in this important category, is shown among the best racecourse in Europe with its unique racecourse that connects the continents of Asia and Europe!
We are proud to be included in the Gold Label category by following the criteria set for road running by the international organization World Athletics Association!
