It's time to make the Union run!
Europe Run is a free of charge virtual running aimed at the Continent, that connects, gifts and makes You run. #alltogethernow
What is Europe Run?
We would like to make as many people run as possible, regardless of their age or nationality on the Continent, and reward them with a certificate & a stamp! 🙂
Who are we?
As the organizers of the Semi-Marathon of Tihany, Szigliget, Napfelkelte és Naplemente, we have been coordinating races since 2015. We had an idea about an International Virtual Run and we created it. Our story is that simple!:)
Is there any race medal?
The masterwork of befutoerem.hu remembers this period. If You want one, we'll send it to You!:) #alwaysremember
100% free of charge
Participation is free of charge for everyone, only a short registration is required.
Is there any rank list, result?
There are no result lists, nor expectations, just move for your own health or for a good cause at a distance chosen by You!:)
You can run during the year for multiple special occasions (see the list below), but for the goal anytime.
All information together
We have collected the key questions & answers.

How can You participate?
Stand up for something!
The Europe Run initiative focuses on the greatest mass sport of the Continent, in order to raise attention to the importance of moving, whether it is running, hiking or walking. Furthermore, we are also aware that sport is one of the greatest community creator. So …
Why not raise the attention to an organization or initiative deemed important by You?
At Europe Run, every runner has the option to select an organization, for which You perform in mind, and to whom You would like to express your sympathy or commitment to. You can find these organizations on our website, see how many followers your organization has moved and how many kilometres have been performed for them in total. It’s important that it isn’t a race, here everyone participates out of own determination, there is nothing to account for, no rank lists, no better or worse runner, no organization. The key is equality and unity, represented by the European Union for every citizen.
Who are the patrons of the event?
I was 40 when I ran my first marathon, afterwards, it took me 5 years to reach Spartathlon. The world isn't better by this, but it's a good example that you should dream big. Perhaps Europe Run will be the one to change your life, good luck with that!
When someone asks what is the reason for the quick success, I can highlight three things: See the goal in front of you, believe in yourself and fight as much as you can! Whatever your goal is with Europe Run, I wish you great success!
Community has the power to build, so build and don't look for an excuse. Rather look for an opportunity and realize you found it!
Running connects and unites regardless of age, sex, geographical distance or identity. Now more than ever. Although runners cannot meet in person, there is a greater need than ever to be able to share our experiences through virtual platforms, which is not about performance or competition. Because individual runs together turn into one energy which provides even higher motivation. This is Europe Run, a global community that even a global virus cannot restrict.
Who You might already know?
Viwa Vitaminwater highlights the importance of a healthy lifestyle and daily exercise. In addition, through Europe Run, we can do sports with friends we don’t have the opportunity to meet too often, yet now we can still share this experience. Running shoes on!
Let's continue to pursue our passion together virtually!
Here is an amazing initiative that I am already very happy about, as running is for everyone, it connects us and fellow runners motivate. I hope to have the opportunity to run together and compete in all parts of the world in person soon, but in the meantime we will continue to work virtually. IRUNmore SE was also the first to join this great idea. With Europe Run, you have the opportunity to run for a noble cause, for a foundation that is important to you, or for an initiative started by the organizers, which of course comes with a wonderful medal. Come on, fellow Runners!
PENCO Hungary is committed to help and support all initiatives related to a healthy lifestyle and maintaining health. This initiative is now perfectly in line with our objective. We hope that people actively involved in the program will be able to receive even more information about PENCO products and the activities of PENCO Hungary, for us to provide more athletes with effective support for their workouts through our nutritional supplements.
A great initiative that appeals to runners across Europe and resonates with Runner's World #RunAlone Challenge: the experience of belonging to a community, yet running alone, safely, responsibly!
Why are we happy to work with the Europe Run team?
Because Team is great.
Because they set clear goals for themselves.
Because they see the opportunity in everything to do good, better and even better.
Because we think along the same lines.
Because we support a good cause and it is extremely important for us and for BMW globally,
to appear as committed to events that point to the future, build, educate, and shape the future. P>
We believe that running is not just a sport. By running, you will become a stronger, more balanced, liberated, purposeful, happier person and become a member of a fantastic community.
We are proud to be part of the Europe Run community!
Who else you might also know?
Running is a way of life, it makes you happy, connects you with new friends, makes you healthy, gives you an experience, forges into a family and a community. Let's run together: EUROPE RUN!
A lot has changed since I run regularly. I became stronger both physically and mentally. Sometimes I feel invincible. I want everyone to experience this power while running.
Europe Run brings runners from different countries together, creating a great international running community that can even end up by making new friends. Last but not least, it's proof that the love of running and sports is everywhere.
I went running once, and then, thanks to running races, regular running has become a part of my life. Thanks to Europe Run, I will run where I want to, in a race with anyone across Europe. For example with You! If you can imagine, you can do it! Let's get to work! P>
It's a great idea that organizers think of everyone - from slow runners to fast runners - and it's not about competing with each other, it's about completing the distance for a running experience.
Running is a wonderful thing that makes friendships, motivates people, fills you with energy. You can run anywhere, anytime, and with the help of Europe Run, you can even support noble causes and make new friends. The successes you achieve will strengthen you, make you more confident in all areas of life, and give you plenty of strength. I believe in that!
Inspiration and motivation play an important role not only in sports, but in all aspects of our lives, which is why not only elite athletes but also a multitude of anonymous, ordinary heroes can be the best example of solving a problem or overcoming an obstacle. Together we are always capable of more, and for a good, noble cause we will surely bring our best form. Join us to help each other reach our goal together. P>
So far, everything related to the Team of futniszép.hu has been special, but now a unique worldwide project is starting. We can create a huge running community that anyone can be a part of. From children to the elderly, without restrictions, and even more, we can also do something good with all this. I am honoured to be a part of it. Let's run around the world together!
This is an outstanding initiative that promotes the love of running and moving across Europe. It's not the performance that matters, rather the joy of the sport! 🙂
If this period is over, I'll still think it's a great thing, because it brings people together much better, not only in Hungary but throughout Europe! I was excited to get started and get to know a lot more runners! 🙂 Last but not least, I'm very happy to be a little part of this.
Europe Run has two good purposes: to bring Europe's running community together and raise awareness of charities.
A virtual running race where EVERYONE can participate. There are no distances, it's free, you don't even have to travel, and the reward is a medal, a diploma, which can give you a motivation boost at your lowest point. Last but not least, we raise the attention to a good cause and we can run together with all runners in Europe!
What you feel at a home race, that the energy of the runners carries you, you can multiply in a foreign race, across continents and cultures. The fact that the entire European running circle puts together ten million people - for a good cause - puts on shoes, starts a watch and RUNS! I can't imagine the effect it will have! Cannot be missed. For sure. And a great idea! I am so grateful to be a part of it!
I need the atmosphere of the races, the company, but even if we can’t get it now, let’s give back something from what we got from the run. Let's make everyone move until we can!
