Dear Runners,

As a result of the increase in the number of COVID19 cases in Hungary, the Hungarian Government has introduced entry restrictions that make it now impossible for foreigners to enter Hungary. Foreigners will only be allowed to enter Hungary β€œin the case that it is highly necessary.”
These restrictions will take effect from 1 September 2020 and will stay in force for at least one month.

We are offering 2 options for those, who cannot attend the Wizz Air Budapest Half Marathon race taking place on 6 September due to the restrictions.
One of them is offering a virtual edition of the race: the Virtual Wizz Air Budapest Half Marathon. Click here for more information.
We will notify all of our runners in an email regarding their entry fees credited on their online BSI account that will be valid until 31/12/2022, and how to use the credit for example by registering for the virtual edition.

Those runners, who can meet the administrative requirements of entering and stay in the country, and can take part in the event, have nothing to do now, just pick up the BIB number at the Race Center during opening hours.

We are extremely sorry, that the second wave of the COVID19 epidemic has taken away the opportunity for many foreign runners to run in Budapest.
We hope to see you at one of our events in the coming years. We wish you good runs in the meantime!
