Antalya Marathon

Located in the southern coastal city of Antalya, the Antalya Marathon is a mostly flat-surface city marathon but it also ventures outside of the city along the coast around Lara Beach. It was established in 2006 and has been held annually since then in March each year. If a normal marathon isn't demanding enough for you, you can try to participate in the high-heels run that is held simultaneously. For most people though, a normal marathon is probably good enough, and for the more leisurely oriented runner, there is also a "fun race" where there is no time keeping.
