Hungary to organise 76km race in Hungary, Slovakia

A 76km running competition crossing from Hungary to Slovakia and over three rivers will be held for the first time on September 11, a government official told a press conference on Monday.

State Secretary Bence Retvari, the region’s MP, said the race was the first of its kind in the region, organised by companies operating around the Danube bend.

The start will be in Veroce, north of Vac, and will cross the River Ipoly to Slovakia and turn north to cross the river Hron (Garam). Competitors will then return to Hungary across the Danube bridge between Sturovo (Parkany) and Esztergom, and will cross the Danube again via a service tunnel near Visegrad to Veroce.

A 12km race will also be held between Veroce and Visegrad.
