The Oxigén Kupa is a trail running race series held annually on six weekends between October and March in the protected Nagyerdő (‘Great Forest’) which spreads to the north of the city of Debrecen, Hungary's second-largest city.

On average, each event attracts more than 300 runners which makes it one of the most popular running events in eastern Hungary.

Each event offers children's races (1.5km, 2.5km), a 5km race and a 10km race.

The 5k is two laps and the 10k is four laps of a gently-undulating loop course on forest trails, starting and ending at Debrecen's Köztemető (Public Cemetery).

The event does not charge any entry fees. You just need to pay a small one-time fee for the bib chip, which you can then use in all events of the series.
