Women running in Budapest, Hungary (Copyright © 2011 Hendrik Böttger /


Around 3,000 women took part in last year's Női Futógála in Budapest.

In 2012, the event will be held again on Margitsziget ("Margaret Island"), a 2.5km-long island in the River Danube. Situated close to the city centre, Margitsziget is a popular recreation ground with parks and many sports facilities.

Entrants can choose between the 3.5km run (one loop), the 7.5km race (two loops), the 7.5km relay (two runners: 3.5km+4km), and the 2.8km walk. As there will be a break between the 3.5k and the 7.5k, it's also possible to run both distances.

Last year, Csilla Pap won the 7.5k race in a time of 27min 45sec.
