Göcsej Galopp, Kávás, Hungary - Teljesítménytúra (Copyright © 2016 Hendrik Böttger / runinternational.eu)


The Göcsej Galopp is held annually in early March in the hills of the Göcsej region in the far west of Hungary.

Situated near the borders with Austria and Slovenia, Göcsej is a beautiful place for running as it's a thinly-populated region of woods, streams, farmland and scattered villages, criss-crossed by trails.

The event offers a non-competitive Teljesítménytúra (Performance Tour) for fun runners and walkers ...

Start time Distance Time limit
6.00-8.00 55km 13 hours
6.00-9.00 33km 8 hours
8.00-10.00 16km 4 hours
8.00-10.00 5km
2 hours


... and a Terepfutás (Trail Running Competition) for competitive athletes:

Start time Race distance
10.10 55km, 33km, 16km, 5km


Starting and finishing in the very pretty village of Kávás, all routes are on mixed terrain and mainly off road. Parts of the course might be very muddy, so you'd better take your trail shoes.

The routes are well marked and participants also get a map which they can take with them on the run.
