Budapest Women's Run
Budapest, with its seven bridges and three hills, has long won the hearts of runners from other countries. In 2002 more than 2000 foreign visitors from 41 countries came to discover this charming and mysterious capital.
The event starts at the impressing Hősök tere (Heroes' Square), which is usually the main meeting place for skaters and skateboarders, but for a few days at the end of summer thousands of two-legged enthusiasts reclaim the square and admire the 24 sculptures representing important actors from Hungarian history. It's not a coincidence that Fred Lebow - a Hungarian by origin - also wanted the Budapest Marathon to start from here.
The competition is made especially attractive by the city's fascinating beauty - for example, Andrássy Avenue (a Unesco World Heritage site), the art-nouveau style Gresham Hotel, the good old Chain Bridge, the Buda Castle (also part of Unesco World Heritage), the idyllic Margaret Island, the monumental Parliament - runners have all these sights to admire, which effectively eases the pain of this long distance.
After the contest, competitors can bathe their aching feet in one of the 22 pools of the Széchenyi thermal bath, the most famous spa in Budapest.

TeamLWB will be walking to benefit LWB's Medical Program.
LWB was founded after a group of parents helped a young boy receive heart surgery. Since then LWB's Medical Program has provided surgeries and other medical care for thousands of orphaned and impoverished children from provinces throughout China.
Our medical program's goal is to provide the highest quality care for the children entrusted to us. Our decisions are based, first and foremost, on what is in the best interest of the child, as well as balancing the constraints of location, ability, finances, and long-term care options available.
