The first Tashkent International Half Marathon was held in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, 24 March during Navruz, the spring festival of Uzbekistan. Hytera and local partner O'zelectroapparat provided communications devices for public safety for the event.

The Ministry of Physical Culture and Sports of the Republic of Uzbekistan, the Hokimiyat of Tashkent, the National Olympic Committee, the Federation of Athletics of Uzbekistan and the Union of Youth of Uzbekistan co-organized the event. More than 1,700 participants, including professional athletes and runners from 28 states, gathered to run two distances of 21.097 kilometers (half marathon) and a satellite race for 5 kilometers.

The event was held for the first time ever in Uzbekistan and required resilient radio communications services to enhance efficiency and improve safety for security personnel, staff and the public.

“With the cutting-edge radios provided by Hytera, we have achieved a best team coordination and witnessed the success of the mass sporting event,” said the Tashkent International Half Marathon organizing committee. “We are very proud to work with such an excellent partner in such a memorable moment. The support we received also encourages us to develop international-friendly relations and pursue athletes and tourists from near and far foreign countries.”
