5th Tapolca Half Marathon 2015
Tapolca (Hungary), Saturday 2 May 2015
The Tapolca Félmaraton in Hungary begins and ends on the Baroque main square of Tapolca, a very pretty small town of 16,000 people, situated about 12km from the northern shore of Lake Balaton, Central Europe's largest lake.
Entrants can choose to compete as an individual or as part of a relay team, with teams consisting of two, three, or four runners.
The half marathon is two laps of a gently undulating course.
Participants run on roads and cycleways (a short section is on a gravel road) to the village of Diszel and from there back to Tapolca.
The route offers fine views of the volcanic hills of the Bakony hill range.
The time limit to finish the race is three hours.
