Join Team Muntada Aid at Istanbul Half Marathon 2023 and 10K run

A unique experience awaits you in the Historic Peninsula, which has hosted the world's oldest civilizations for thousands of years along the track! 

It is perfect for running the 21K and 10K races. This track, which has no altitude difference, offers athletes a unique opportunity to do their best. But this is not the only feature that makes this track unique: The Historic Peninsula Track, surrounded on one side with the view of the Marmara Sea, the Bosphorus and the Golden Horn, and on the other side with a historical texture dating back to 8,000 years, gives runners no choice but to enjoy the race.
