Experience the Magic of Budapest by Night at the Generali Night Run

Generali Night Run

If you’re visiting Budapest this summer, don’t miss the chance to see the city’s famous sights in a whole new light at the Generali Night Run on August 31st, 2024. This unique running event takes place after sunset, allowing participants to race through the illuminated streets of the Hungarian capital.

One of the highlights of running at night is avoiding the heat and humidity of the day. The cooler evening temperatures make the race much more comfortable for contestants, especially on the longer distances like the half marathon (21.1km). Runners can really soak in the atmosphere without battling exhausting conditions.

The courses weave through Budapest’s most iconic locations like the beautifully lit Parliament, Margit Bridge, and the atmospheric Alagút (Tunnel). Perhaps the most spectacular sight is running across the famous Széchenyi Chain Bridge at night. With pulsing music and visual effects along the route, it’s an electrifying experience.

In addition to the half marathon, the Generali Night Run offers distances of 6km, 10.5km (including a headlamp run), and a 2-person half marathon relay. There are also children’s races as part of the Kinder Joy of Moving program. The race village is set up at the picturesque Várkert Bazár.

Whether you’re a serious runner or just want a unique way to tour Budapest, the Generali Night Run promises an unforgettable evening. Grab your running shoes and experience the Hungarian capital’s magic by night!
