Netishyn Half Marathon “Independent People” was first held in 2018. The program of the competition included three distances in fact, a half marathon, a 10-kilometer race and a 5-kilometer race. Крім популяризації здорового способу життя, організатори поставили цими змаганнями інтегрувати нетішинських бігунів у європейський марафонський рух і залучити в місто якомога більше туристів. Тож не дивно, що маршрут півмарафону пролягає вулицями Нетішина та його мальовничими околицями.
