From Yesterday To Tomorrow
14th International Tarsus Half Marathon will be held on 23 October. This year’s motto is “Running From Yesterday To Tomorrow”.
Inaugurated in 2004, International Tarsus Half Marathon had gained a seat among the road races in Turkey with its high quality despite the interruption in the years 2009, 2016, 2017, 2019 and 2020. The race attracted many outstanding international athletes during the 13 years it was held, thanks to its fast course. Men’s course record of 1:02:05 dates back to 2007, set by Kenyan Wilson Kipsang Kiprotich who won the marathon bronze medal at the 2012 London Olympic Games, then went on to break the world record by 2:03:23 in Berlin the following year. Women’s course record was broken by Pauline Esikon of Kenya in 1:08:17 last year.
While Mersin Metropolitan Municipality took charge of the event this year, the winners’ awards have been increased to 30 thousand Turkish Lira. Master athletes who make the podium will also pocket cash prizes. The event includes a fun run as well. Registration with the race is possible at https://spor.mersin.bel.tr until 16 October. Race timing in Tarsus will be provided by Depar Timing.
