The 16th N Kolay Istanbul Half Marathon will take place as scheduled on 4 April 2021 with numbers limited to 4000 runners.

A strong field of elite athletes including Kibiwott Kandie, Geoffrey Kamworor, Brigid Kosgei and Yalemzerf Yehualaw are confirmed to run the race.

Corresponding virtual races are being staged. On 27–28 March Turkey’s highest participation virtual event will take place offering distances of half marathon 5km, 10km and 15km.

On 8 November last year, while most marathons were cancelled or only for a small group of elite athletes, the 42nd edition of the N Kolay Istanbul Marathon went ahead with a completely different start and finish area and on a course radically changed to meet the threat of the pandemic. 4000 runners took part in that race.
