Tour de Budapest (TDB) is a one-day urban running event taking place all over Budapest. It's ideal for anyone that like to move, meet awesome people and explore Budapest in an active and fun way.
Teams will be equipped with a blank map with only the starting point marked. At each location teams will be required to do a short CrossFit-style workout before the next point on the map will be marked by the station judge. Teams will then try to make their way to the next location as fast as possible. It's not permitted to use any other forms of transportation other than running, speed walking, walking, crawling or jumping.
The event duration is estimated to be between 1.30h and 2.30h and the entire course will be between 8-12 km. Teams will have to stop at 5-8 different stations along the way.
It's suitable for all fitness levels and ages. However, participants should be confident that they can run or walk between 1-2 km without stopping i.e. to the next location.

Who is Tour de Budapest for?
The event is suitable for all age and fitness levels. It's not supposed to be a competitive event, but allow people to challenge themselves and really enjoy this day at the same time. The best compliment we could ask for after the event, would be you saying you had a great day and a lot of fun.
When will the next Tour de Budapest take place?
The next Tour de Budapest will take place on May 12,2018. The approximate start time is 6 pm, but will depend on when your heat is scheduled to start.
I saw that for the last TDB teams of 4 were participating. Can I sign up a team of 4?
No, not for this edition. But feel free to sign up two teams of 2 ;). If you do not have a partner yet, contact us and we will pair you up with someone.
Can the teams be mixed gender?
When will I know which heat my team will be in? Can I somehow influence it?
We will reach out to all teams once registration closes. But please send us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with your preferred starting time and we will see what we can do for you.
I am not sure if I am fit enough to participate. How fit do I need to be?
In our opinion the hardest part of Tour de Budapest is the running. However, it also helps to be familiar with movements such as squats, kettlebell swings, wall ball shots, deadlifts, burpees, etc. But rest assured there won't be muscle ups, pull ups, handstand push ups or olympic weightlifting movements (snatch and clean & jerk).
Will there be heavy lifting? Could you give me a sample workout?
There might be some lifting but limited to easier lifting movements such as deadlifts, squats and simple press variations. A sample workout could be:
I would like to wear my CrossFit box t-shirt. Can I?
Unfortunately not. For the event, we ask all our participants to wear the TDB shirt so that our station judges can easily identify you. However, you are more than welcome to wear your boxes' shirt for the after race picture.
What kind of clothes do we need to bring? Do we need to bring water and food?
Depending on the weather conditions, we recommend to wear appropriate clothing. Most important are proper running shoes that allow you to run comfortably. In your goodie bag, you will find some water and snacks for the race but please bring whatever else you deem necessary. For instance, it would make sense to bring an electrolyte drink in case it's really warm and wear layers for a colder night.
I am ready to go. Where do I sign up and what options do I have?
