Istanbul Marathon, also kwnon as Eurasia Marathon or Vodafone Marathon, is organized every November. It’s the only marathon that starts in Asia and finished in Europe. This year marathon will take place on Sunday, November 16th. Even if you are not really a runners, you can participate! And

it’s totally for free! The marathon has also the ”walking” category, so called 8K Fun Walk. If you’ll be in town at least 1 day before this event takes place, you can register for Fun Walk at Vodafone stands around the city. I defenitely recommend it to you, because if you participate you have an unique opportunity to cross the Bosphorus bridge (the bridge is otherwise only open for traffic and not for pedestrian). Here is the link of the official page.
