Held in Cluj-Napoca, Romania's second-largest city with a population of about 325,000 people, the Maratonul International Cluj-Napoca is one of the most popular running events in the Transylvania region.

Last year, approximately 1,200 runners took part in the three races on offer (half marathon, marathon, and marathon relay). The 2km children's race and the 6km fun run had a large turnout as well.

All races begin and end on the athletics track of the Cluj Arena, a brand-new 30,000-seat stadium, situated on the Someșul Mic River near the city centre.

The 42.2km marathon consists of four laps of a mostly flat course that runs out and back in different directions.

Competitors run along both banks of the river, around the wooded Central Park, and through the city centre with its many magnificent historic buildings.

The time limit to finish the race is 3hr for the half marathon and 5hr 30min for the marathon.
