Aradi vértanúk

The programs of the Kapisztrán Square in the finish area provide a great opportunity to spend a nice time during and after the race both for athletes and fans. Museum of Military History’s exhibitions will be free to visit for everyone, thanks to the Ledership of Museum. The Military History Museum displays an abundant collection of weapons, uniforms, flags and all kind of military documents and relics. So among others we can recognize the awfulness of the trench warfare by simulated life of war.

The weapons will have a role also outside on the Square. Spectators will have opportunity to try laser shooting. Weapons will be provided by Ministry of Defense’s Budapest Military Sports Club.

If somebody would be interested in security- and defense policy issues, roundtable discussion can offer a good opportunity thinking common about these themes, supported by the Hungarian Youth Atlantic Council.

Furthermore, in the finish area there will be an outdoor military music performance presented by the HDF Central Orchestra.

Run with us through the most beautiful historical parts of Budapest!


Similarly to last year the race route will have been kept in Buda, touching the most beautiful and romantic parts of Budapest.

Started from Vérmező the itinerary drives athletes throw Tunnel of Lánc Bridge towards Viziváros until Margit Bridge. From here this time runners will follow backwards the river line downhill until they reach Taban, where the route of the competition turns towards the Castle District back. In the last two kilometers, after leaving the building of Royal Palace behind, the road leads the runners up to the slope of Buda Castle Hill which puts to participants’ final strength to the test, but they will enter in an ancient and placid atmosphere of the oldest district.

The finish area of the event will be stylishly paced on Kapisztrán Square in front of the Military History Museum.
