ISTANBUL EURASIA MARATHON
November 17, 2013
RUN FROM ASIA TO EUROPE
Only one marathon in the world allows you to run on two continents in the same race, the Istanbul Eurasia Marathon on November 17. The Marathon, 15Km, and 8Km races both start on the Asian side, cross the Bosphorus and Golden Horn Bridges, pass under the Aqueduct and follow the Marmara Sea beach, to the finish line on the European side at the Hippodrome, one of the oldest race tracks in the world, situated in the historical district of Sultanahmet, famous for its ancient monuments and mosques.
This 2012 event had 3,838 participants in the marathon; 5,469 in the 15K and 3,669 in the 8K representing 88 countries.
How about a "Twofer?" Run the Athens Classic Marathon on November 10 and take a short flight across the Adriatic to neighboring Turkey to run again on the following Sunday. We have customized a 10-night package with 5 nights in Athens and 5 nights in Istanbul to fulfill this goal.
