Tapolca Félmaraton / Tapolca Half Marathon, Hungary (Copyright © 2013 Hendrik Böttger / runinternational.eu)


This félmaraton 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 in Hungary.

The half marathon is two laps of a gently undulating course.

Participants run on roads and cycleways to the village of Diszel and from there back to Tapolca. A short section is on a gravel road.

The route offers fine views of the volcanic hills of the Bakony hill range.

Entrants can choose to compete as an individual or as part of a relay team, with teams consisting of two, three or four runners.
