The Oxigén Nagyerdei Maraton takes place on the trails of the Nagyerdő ("Great Forest"), situated on the northern edge of the city of Debrecen in eastern Hungary.

Last year, around 300 runners from six countries took part in the event.

Entrants can choose between the half marathon or the full marathon.

Participants in the 42.2-kilometre marathon run eight laps of a gently undulating course through the forest. The half marathon consists of four laps.
