The Tudás Útja félmaraton ("Way of Knowledge Half Marathon") is a road running event held in Budapest, capital of Hungary.

The fifteenth edition of the race took place on 8 November 2015, with 336 finishers in the half marathon and 221 finishers in the "Academic 6" 6km run.

As far as we know, the event was not held in 2016, 2017 and 2018. We do not have any information if the event will be held again in the future.

Starting and ending at the prestigious Semmelweis University, Hungary's oldest medical school, which also offers courses in Physical Education and Sports Sciences, the half marathon route passes several universities, colleges and academies on both sides of the River Danube.

It also visits some of Budapest's best sights, for instance the Hungarian Parliament Building (the largest building in the country) and the magnificent Széchenyi Chain Bridge.

The Academic 6 is a point-to-point race from the Semmelweis University to the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (pictured).

Both routes are mostly flat and fast.
