Szaggasd az aszfaltot! - runners on the bikeway between Bagod and Zalalövő in western Hungary (Copyright © 2011 Hendrik Böttger /


Held on a beautiful long-distance cycleway through Zala County in western Hungary, the Szaggasd az aszfaltot! is a terrific running event for runners of all ages and abilities. One hundred and thirty runners took part in the event last year.

The course is out and back through lovely countryside and pretty villages, and it offers the possibility to clock a fast 10km or half marathon time. Fun runners and families may prefer to take part in the 3km run. Children run 500m.

The start and the finish are in the village of Bagod, which is about 9km from the city of Zalaegerszeg. The route runs westwards towards the village of Zalalövő.
