Turkey's clear, blue Bodrum coast beckons runners

Turkey's Aegean region has blossomed with the spirit of spring with sports events like the upcoming Bodrum Global Run, a large-scale marathon that will take place from April 15 to April 17, hosted for the third time in the city.

The race center is located in the Bodrum Cruise Port, which is 1.5 kilometers away from the city center. The Bodrum Global Run, which has the capacity to host 1,000 runners, will hold a race briefing on April 16. Runners will be provided with a sports bag including, a sweat-proof T-shirt, race number and time tracker chip. An award ceremony will be held on April 17 at the race center. Award categories will be divided based on different age groups and medals will be given to the winner of the Bodrum Global Run by the organization.

Revenue will be given to Tüvana Education Foundation for Children (TOÇEV) and Parıltı Foundation for Children with Visual Impairment. For the last three years, the marathon has drawn more sportsmen and contributed to the coastal town's tourism and economy. The marathon will be an opportunity for participant runners to enjoy time with their families while having fun on a short holiday in Bodrum. The beautiful coastal town is a great touristic destination, known not only in Turkey but around the globe for its natural beauties and rich culture. The small town is famous for its historic castle and white houses located side-by-side on narrow streets which hug the shore.
