Last Entries for Gazi Half Marathon
Gazi Half Marathon, scheduled to 22 December, is likely to reach its quota of 1,000 participants before the entry closing date.
Following the Liberation Run at a distance of 10km in 2017 and the very successful inaugural edition of the half marathon last year, Gaziantep Metropolitan Municipality is set to host the road runners at the 2nd Gazi Half Marathon on Sunday, 22 December. The registration for the event had been announced to remain open until 18 December at www.gaziyarimaratonu.org, however, the number of the confirmed entries is already close to the participation limit, which is one thousand, and the registration might be closed earlier if this pre-determined quota is reached. A 5km public run is incorporated in the programme of the day.
The total prize money of 35,000 Turkish Liras offered for the overall classification in its first year is now generously raised to 110,000 Turkish Liras by Gaziantep Metropolitan Municipality. Master men up to over 70 years of age and master women up to over 65 will also pocket prize money. Cash awards are on stake only for the Turkish citizens at the Gazi Half Marathon.
