  • The Istanbul Half Marathon (Turkish: İstanbul Yarı Maratonu) is an annual road running event over the half marathon distance (21.1 km) that takes place in April on the streets of Istanbul, Turkey. Established in 2015, the first edition immediately attracted high calibre elite runners, resulting in quick winning times of 60:13 minutes in the men's category and 66:38 minutes in the women's race. A total of 2095 runners finished the inaugural mass race in Istanbul. The event was organised by Istanbul Sports Events – the organiser of the long-running Istanbul Marathon event. The half marathon course begins and ends in Eyüp in the central-western part of the city, following a route south to the seafront area of Eminönü. Among other sights, it passes the Golden Horn, Yenikapı square and Kadir Has University. A 10K run is also hosted for amateur runners and this section had over 1500 finishers in 2016. The 2016 edition of the race gained IAAF Bronze Label status and the field included world record breakers Zersenay Tadese and Leonard Patrick Komon. That year, the event was staged on the same weekend as the Presidential Cycling Tour of Turkey. (en)
