Szigetköz Minimaraton - the route across the Moson Danube (Copyright © 2012 Hendrik Böttger)


The Szigetköz Minimaraton brings runners to the spa town of Mosonmagyaróvár in the north-eastern corner of Hungary, close to the borders with Austria and Slovakia.

The route is a 16km loop through fields and villages in the Szigetköz, a 50km-long flat tract of land which is bounded by two rivers, the Danube and the Moson-Danube.

Last year, over 150 runners took part in the Minimaraton. The winners were Gáspár Csere (49:53) and former Paris Marathon winner Judit Nagy Földingné (58:33).

The event also includes a 4km run, which had about 240 finishers.
