Budapest is the only capital city in the world that is rich in thermal waters with healing qualities. Thanks to a unique geological feature, Budapest 'sits' on over 100 thermal springs that feed the city's famous bathhouses. Budapest is also one of the few places where you can experience traditional Turkish baths dating back to 16th and 17th centuries. There is nothing to compare to the feeling having a healing bath after your long run. Come and experience it!

22 000 participants overall out of them 5 000 runners only on the marathon distance. Almost half of them coming from abroad, from 68 different countries. There is no doubt, that this is a real international event on one hand, while still a middle sized marathon catering for individual needs on the other! The course is not overcrowded but you won't feel alone on the route either.

A scenic course leads through the most beautiful parts of Budapest, past buildings which are part of the World Heritage!

Come and admire the panorama of the capital from both banks of the river Danube, see the bridges over the river while you run either when crossing them or when running under them!

Budapest is waiting for you!
