Tour Description

The Budapest Marathon is part of a 2-day festival all about running. On Sunday the focus is on the marathon, however, you may also run a 30 km or a marathon in a team of 2 or 4. While on Saturday the focus is on a 10 km run and shorter distances for the less experienced runners. With distances ranging from 400 m to 42 km everyone in the family can find their own challenge and take part in the running festival.

Participating in the marathon is essentially a running sightseeing tour of the beautiful Budapest. The course runs through the heart of Budapest, crosses several bridges, and passes the most well-known sites of the city. Admire the view of the Buda Castle from the Danube banks and marvel in the panorama of Pest as well as Europe’s third-largest Parliament building!

There are over 27.000 participants on all the distances, with more than 6.000 marathon runners and 1300 relay teams. However, no need to worry about crowding and overtaking as the start is done in waves so everyone has plenty of space to run.

Along the course, there will be refreshments every 3 to 4 kilometers and of course continuous medical supervisionPace runners will help you hit your desired tempo. But having fun is just as important as running so we’ll maintain several musical points along the course for your entertainment.

Each year participants receive a unique, race branded technical T-shirt, and finishers are given a gorgeous medal.

Budapest is the perfect destination for a weekend city trip. Budapest is the spa capital with over 100 thermal springs beneath the city that supply the famous baths. After the run, you can rest your leg in the thermal pools of a unique 16th and 17th-century Turkish baths or the neo-baroque Széchenyi bath.

Also unique to Europe are Budapest’s ruin pubs. Located in the city center, this new function saved the countless old, run-down buildings from demolition. Their atmosphere is unusual, their style is retro and they revive socialist realist interior design. The perfect place to grab a drink the night before or after the race.

And while you are here don’t forget to try out the best of Hungary’s cuisine: a gulash, a stew, a strudel, and a pancake.

If your stomach is sensitive, you may want to leave this for after the race!
