Background. Sports events are activities carried out in a specific schedule to handle all sports competitions and activities, such as seminars, meetings, courses, panels, and camps, organized for sports purposes. Objectives. In this study, we aimed to discuss sports events during the pandemic. Methods. In this context, the present study targeted the 16th NKolay Istanbul Half Marathon on April 4, 2021, and recruited the randomly selected 125 female (23.1%) and 417 male (76.9%) marathon runners in this event. We gathered the data using a demographic information format and a 14-item scale. Results. We sought answers to four hypotheses . . .by employing a descriptive survey model. Initially, we carried out a pilot study with a sample of 30 people to explore the scale’s validity and replicated the validity study for the primary sample. We performed exploratory factor analysis with the varimax rotation method for the validity study and attempted to confirm the resultant factorial structure using confirmatory factor analysis. We utilized a T-test and one-way analysis of variance to investigate whether the survey subscales differed significantly by the participants’ demographics. We ran statistical analyses on SPSS 20.0 at the 95% confidence interval. Conclusion. The findings confirmed our first two hypotheses. We were able to confirm the third hypothesis partially. Accordingly, the participants significantly differed in the race destination subscale by only income. Finally, our results rejected the fourth hypothesis. Overall, we may assert that COVID-19 is a prime concern for half marathon runners
