Budapest International Half Marathon Budapest International Half Marathon

Type:   Budapest street route
Event Dates:   Sep 13, 2015
Venue:    Budapest street route

The Budapest International Half Marathon follows a scenic route from Pest, over the Chain Bridge to Buda and back to Pest again all the way to the finish-line in City Park. The start gate on Kós Károly sétány is located about 100 meters from the race centre. The race led through the most beautiful parts of the city. At several points along the route, runners were greeted with a unique musical experience. On Andrassy Avenue, a World Heritage site, 5 pianos were set up alongside the road playing classical (Mahler, Liszt and Erkel) and jazz music to inspire and help runners to achieve their goal. To help runners along the way organisers prepared 120,000 cups of water, 3,500 litres of Powerade iso drink, 700 kg of bananas, 100 kg glucose and 10,000 apples. Close to 300 people worked at the refreshment stations and overall, the event was organised with the help of 600 people.
