Kilometers achieved: Each kilometer is marked on the route with a sign placed 2 meters high. This will allow you to check your pace to complete the distance at the pace you have planned and prepared for.
If you think you won’t be able to run at a predetermined speed, several pace runners aiming for different goal times and paces can help you realize your goals.
We choose all of our pace runners very carefully, all of them are experienced runners and they are able to surpass their own interests and do everything for the runners who are following them and trust them. They think instead of the runners, check the time regularly and encourage others.
Although they will start with the Marathon field coming from Buda, you can join them when you start the race. You can always spot them from afar by the beach flags on their back (with their goal race pace and goal finish time). Find the pace that best suits you:

The exact pace chart of the sweep bus:
The time measurement service provider at the race is AGNI-Timing.
The UHF chip will be located at the back of your bib number. Consequently, it is essential that you wear your own bib correctly: well visibly on your chest without folding it.
Failure to do so may result in a 10-minute time penalty.
Bib number rules
Time measurement is done with the help of timing mats (antennas) placed on the ground, that detects the transmitter placed in the bib number from a distance of about 2-3 meters. Time-stamping occurs at a strong signal only (when passing over the starting carpet).
For a successful time measurement, please abide by the following rules:
- The bib number must be worn visibly throughout the race, around the abdomen/chest.
- Bib number holding belt is allowed and recommended!
- The bib number must not be hidden or folded.
- The chip on the back of the bib number should not be removed, folded, or punctured with the safety pin.
- Make sure to wear your own bib number during the race.
- Once arriving at the finish line, please leave the measuring point as soon as possible.
- Prizes will be issued to the top 3 male and female individuals, and
- 1st-3rd placed wheelchair and handbike male and female riders will be awarded a material gift.
- The results are announced based on the order of arrival at the finish line (gross time). The result list on the website (based on net time) may include a different ranking.
The winner of the 30km race is the one who runs the distance and is first to cross the finish line (abiding by the race rules). Therefore, we ask those runners who are going for a place to start at the earliest time. If someone starts later might not be awarded, despite having a better race time.
AFTER RACE INFORMATION
The list of results will be published online in real-time and will be updated as runners cross the finish line.
Runners who do not have time at one of the checkpoints along the course will not be given a rank.
Those who received a 10-minute penalty will be marked with an asterisk.
