Budapest Night Run 2024

Budapest is a beautiful city, but it becomes even more beautiful when it is dark outside and the lights are turned on! Wouldn’t it be nice to see the city with your own eyes in the darkness while running a distance of 5, 10, or 21 kilometers? That is possible if you come to Budapest and participate in the Budapest Night Run, also referred to as Generali Night Run.

It started as a simple run, but it has become one of the most popular sports events in Budapest. The atmosphere is fantastic and due to the fact that it is in the evening, you avoid the extreme heat, and you get to see the beautiful city of Budapest at night. All distances start by the Castle Garden (Várkert). This is located on the Buda side, just below the castle (next to the Danube). From there you will run along the Danube towards Margaret Island. This makes you able to see the most famous Parliament building in the world with its beautiful illumination while running. You will later run in the castle district, through the tunnel, and in the area near the Chain Bridge. All in all, a fantastic experience. Throughout the race there are so-called pacers helping you keep your pace. In other words, if you plan on running at a pace of 5 minutes per kilometer, follow the person running with a sign telling you that they are keeping that pace.

The earlier you register, the cheaper it gets. If you are very late, you can register on the spot before the race, but then you should arrive early to make sure everything gets finished in time before the race.

There are also races for kids, meaning that this is an event for the entire family.
