A World Athletics Gold Label race run in Istanbul, the capital of Turkey. It was previously known as the Eurasia Marathon (Istanbul is the only city to be located across two continents - Europe, and Asia) when it was first started in 1978. It was started because the organisers felt that being a unique city (from a historical and geographical perspective) it deserved its own unique marathon.
As well as the marathon distance, a 15k and an 8km fun run are offered.
