Trabzon Half Marathon is also one of the valuable brands of Turkish Athletics Federation as it is Trabzon’s, the popular city of Black Sea region. Nowadays, as tue are hardly working to regenerate the past distance tradition of our country, we are giving more importance to such elite road running organizations. It is a fortune that all of the partners of Trabzon Half Marathon share the same excitement with us. Thanks to the smooth skills of local administrators and athletics workers, to their monetary and moral sacrifices, and with the technical support of our Federation, Trabzon Half Marathon makes a great progress year by year. This Half Marathon deserves praises in terms of elite athlete participation, logistic services. technical systems and all other elements.
