12 YRS – 12 K – EU RUN
Last year we organised an 11 kilometre running race to celebrate the 11th anniversary of Hungary’s EU accession. This year a 12-year-membership goes with a 12-kilometre race. Not only do we welcome competitors; those wishing to do some sightseeing while jogging are also welcome.
The run starts at 10:00 on 8 May 2016 at Margaret Island Athletic Centre with gathering and warm up from 9:00. The 12k course will only be for individual runners; there will be no relay race.
All finishers receive a unique medal symbolising Hungary’s 12-year EU membership and a goodie bag.
The route links 12 Budapest developments which had received significant EU funding, including, among others:
the Comedy Theatre of Budapest (Vígszínház)
National Information Infrastructure
Nővérbank Nursing and Hospice Care Institute
St Peter and Paul Salesian Elementary
Császár-Komjádi Sports Swimming Pool
National Institute of Rheumatology and Physiotherapy
or the Lukács Spa
The start and finish — including the awards ceremony — will take place on Margaret Island in the Margaret Island Athletic Centre, which will also host the Europe Day Festival.
