What is a Supermarathon?

bszm_borostyanThe Lake Balaton Supermarathon is a great race for those who look for real challenges. It is a 4-day-long event, in which the participants run about 48 km each day, 194 km all together. The course leads on a bicycle path and small roads around Hungary’s famous lake, the Lake Balaton.

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 also join the event 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 run a marathon enjoying the peaceful country and the views of the lake on Saturday.
