Run The Planet is proud to introduce our new affiliate Run.com, the best running route resource on the web. If you are looking for a new Budapest running route, or want to share your favorite Budapest running routes with the rest of the word, Run.com is the place to be.
If you are starting from the big international hotels along the river (Marriott, InterContinental), begin first by heading south to the Erzsebet Bridge, cross over to the Budapest side by Gellert Hill, and run up the river on the smooth asphalt walk/bikeway. This is much better than the Pest side of the river with its cobblestones and lack of pedestrian areas. Cross onto the Margit bridge to get to Margitszget (island) which has a pleasant 5380 meter path around the perimeter (including cushioned bricks by the finishing clock on the southwest side). Return as you came and it's a reasonable hour's run door to door from your hotel.
