Wondering what’s it like to run around the Lake Balaton with us?
The Lake Balaton Supermarathon is a great race for those who look for real challenges. It is a 4-day-long race, in which the participants run about 48 km each day, 194,2 km all together. The course leads on a bicycle path and small roads around Hungary’s famous lake, the Lake Balaton.
The German speaking can get a true feel of what the race is like by reading a very well-detailed race report by Birgit Fender, a German runner. Enjoy!
And for the rest of us here a short movie summarising the latest edition:
Not only individual runners, but also relay teams can take part in the race. The members of the relay teams can freely decide on the daily distances of the teammates.
Since 2011 the runners can join the race also only for the weekend, they can take part in the last two days, running the half of the set distance, thus a half circle around the lake.
One can join the race only for one day as well and complete a distance that is slightly longer than a marathon. This is a great possibility for those for whom a marathon is not a challenge anymore and want to try out something harder. A perfect opportunity to enter the world of ultrarunners.
