Participation to sport events is an important aspect of experience. Given the importance of sport event experiences few empirical studies have been conducted to investigate the meaning attached to the experience of a sport event (Kaplanidou & Vogt, 2010). Sport event experience has to a small extent been subject to empirical examination one of the few exceptions to an empirical examination of event experience is Kaplanidou and Vogt’s (2010) study. Their study has developed a measurement scale for the event experience. The scale developed considering organizational, environmental, physical, social and emotional dimensions experienced by individuals participating in sports events. In the present study confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) was carried out so as to find out whether or not the Sport Event Experience Scale would be confirmed in the Turkish sample. Data were collected from individuals who participate in charity running events held in Turkey. Surveys were distributed via social media. Data were collected from 216 individuals 104 female (48%) and 112 male (52%) participating in charity running events in 2017. The confirmatory factor analysis was conducted employing the maximum likelihood method by AMOS 19 program. The model's fit indices were found at acceptable intervals (χ2 =275.055, df = 92, χ2/df = 2.98, NFI (TLI)=.89, GFI =.85, CFI=.91, RMSEA=.08); It can be stated that all of the fit indices of this model revealed a good fit. Moreover, Cronbach's alpha value was found to be .94 as a result of the reliability analysis.
