Hello, Sorry this is a really vague question - does anyone know if there are any races (any distance) in Western Turkey? (Istanbul down to the touristy resorts)
Have been to the Aegean region twice now & enjoyed it so much I'd like to try and go a couple of times next year - perhaps once tying it in with a race.
I think there was the Istanbul marathon in 2012, but i'm not sure the country as a whole has much in the way of running races or running clubs (about 99% of the locals seem to smoke!) most people I saw running were tourists, although the resort we stayed in did host a large international cycling race.
Thanks in advance for any replies....
The Istanbul Marathon is one of the most famous in the world.
Turkey has a few interesting ultra's if you are into that sort of thing.
Thanks Ben, will take a look.
The Istanbul marathon is a possibility for me in 2014.
Ultra's ...maybe in a couple of year time - do you have any info at all?
The following races are qualifiers for Ultra Trail Mount Blanc, and there are links to their respective websites:
