The course of the Istanbul Marathon passes near Hagia Sophia Mosque (formerly a museum) but this should not be enough for you. After the race, it is worth going back to explore this gem, dating back to the year 325 A.D and named the 8th wonder of the world.
There is definitely a lot to do in the city after or before you run the Istanbul Marathon. Get your tickets now and start planning the trip today!
