runs with tom:
on beautiful landscapes and hills
From 2009 figure out and organize homely running days in little villages and towns, close to nice mountains and valleys: Pilis, Börzsöny, Bükk, Gerecse and Káli-basin. Most of them has several distances between 4000 - 25 km, even in asphalt and forest pathes. From March to end November there are 6-7 programs. I try find out new routes year by year and never make repeating lapes Take a look around and ask if youwanna know more.

SASFÉSZEK VERTICAL - every november
As running up to a mountain is a fantastic feeling, I've begun to find nice viewpoints and the way to get there. SASFÉSZEK VERTICAL was the first in end november 2016 in the PILIS mountains (30-40 minutes from Budapest center), followed three others:
CSOBÁNC VERTICAL in april (Balaton Uplands)
HEGYESTETŐ VERTICAL IN MAY (Börzsöny mountains)
BÉLKŐ VERTICAL (Bükk mountains)
SASFÉSZEK (EAGLE NEST): Start from a nice village - Kesztölc - and run up to a lovely huts, see picture. Distance ~6500 m, level difference: ~450 m.
4. CSOBÁNC VERTICAL - 28. march 2020
Balaton Uplands in wonderful: different shapes with volcano hills, just 1-3 km from lake Balaton. Top of Csobánc hill there is a castle ruin and a magic view around. From the village running through vineyards and old cottages on both sides.
~4500 m, with a ~370 m climb up.
12. KÁLI BOUTIQUE ADVENTURE WEEKEND - 18-19. APRIL 2020
Kővágóörs is an old village in the Kali basin. I have a little cottage here and organize the Kali runnings from 2009. The next will be something different, e.g. first day an asphalt 15, 21 and 28 km, touching the villages in the basin or you can start for a 11 km trail and second day: a duathlon (running and biking)...
4. BÉLKŐ VERTICAL/BÜKK MOUNTAINS - 06. JUNE 2020
Eger is my hometown. As I was an orienteering runner, the Bükk mountains - around Eger - were my second home. From Budapest it is a two hours drive to get Bélapátfalva and the wonderful-fabulous monastery under the mountains.
2. GERECSE MINER RUNNING- JUNE 2020
Gerecse mountains and hills are very close to the river Danube/Donau and its bend. In 2019 there was the first running day in 6000 m and 21 000 m. We will continue it with new ways..
7. 3VOLCANOS- SEPTEMBER 2020
Balaton Uplands full of little volcano hills: ideal for walking and running on top of them, where the view is wonderful. 3Volcano has 12, 21 and 30 km distances.
