Bib Number

Your bib number is special for you and to N Kolay Istanbul Half-Marathon. Do not copy it or exchange with other participants.

If you give your bib number to another person or change it, your rank will be cancelled since you will be deemed to have violated the race rules.

ATTENTION: If you exchange your bib number with another runner, both you and the other runner will be disqualified. 

Please do not forget to place the “number tag” bearing the same number with your bib number delivered within your race kit, into the outermost pocket of your bag in order to leave it to the safekeeping tent. 

Your bib number must be attached on your chest throughout the race.

You need to attach your bib number to your garment in a visible fashion so as to ensure that the official photographers of N Kolay Istanbul Half-Marathon can take your photos and you can find these photos later. 

Please do not forget to put on the timekeeping chip, which has been delivered to you with your bib number and is used for keeping the time of your run, before the race starts.

Please completely fill in the required information on the reverse of your bib number, so that we can immediately intervene in case of any health issue.

Chip Usage Video

Overall ranking rewards (elite athletes) will be awarded based on gun time. All age group and other prizes will be given according to chip measurement times.
