“As Vodafone, we care about raising children with digital culture in our country. As a company that aims to support Turkey’s digitization process from educational level, we work hard to express the importance of education on all occasions, and to raise awareness about it. In this context, in the 39th Vodafone İstanbul Marathon, we will run to support digital training of our children who are the future of our country. On the day of the marathon, we will give coding training to the first 1.000 children who come to ‘Coding Tomorrow’ stand, which will be set up in front of Vodafone Park, the finishing point of the marathon, and sign up.

30.000 microchipped athletes are expected
As the first intercontinental marathon that has been held annually since 1979, Vodafone İstanbul Marathon consists of 4 main categories: The marathon (42.195 km), the 15K run, the 10K run, and the amateur run. This year, 30.000 microchipped athletes are expected to run in the marathon, which is one of the best 11 marathons in Europe and one of the best 22 marathons in the world, and has been granted “Golden Category” title by International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) in 2012.
