The Pécs-Harkány Országúti Futóverseny ('Pécs-Harkány Road Running Race') is a 25km point-to-point race for individual runners and 3-person relay teams.

Held annually in March in the Southern Transdanubia region in Hungary, it's a long-standing and prestigious event that has attracted many elite distance runners from near and far.

Starting on Verseny utca (Verseny Street) in the southern part of Pécs, an old city with a multicultural population of nearly 150,000, the route runs southward along the undulating 58-as főút (State Road 58), which is not closed to traffic during the race.

The finish line is at the gyógyfürdő (thermal spa; pictured) in the town of Harkány.

After the race, participants get free entry into the spa complex with its large indoor and outdoor pools.

Later in the afternoon, they can use the free bus service to get back to Pécs.
