If you run a longer distance, stop for a moment at the distance selected upon registration and take a photo of your smartwatch or app then continue running. This way you can get the exact time of completing the 3 km, 5 km, 10 km, half marathon, or the marathon.

Run the Charming Budapest Virtual Run time limit

There is no time limit, so you don’t have to run from the sweep bus 🙂
The distance can be completed by running or walking, the only thing to keep in mind is to do it in one cycle, with one-time recording.

Run the Charming Budapest Virtual Run proof of completion

To be able to successfully submit your results you need to provide the following information:

– Bib (find your bib in the confirmation of your registration)
– The distance of your choice
– Finish time
– Proof of completing the distance

You may verify your results by the following methods (choose one):
1. By sharing a PUBLIC link to your training (e.g. Strava, Endomondo). Don’t worry, your training will not be shared anywhere, it is needed for verification purposes only.
2. By uploading a photo that clearly shows the details of your training (distance and finish time). You can take a screenshot of your phone showing your results on the exercise app, or take a shot of your smartwatch or the treadmill’s display. The only thing that matters is that the picture must clearly show the accomplished distance and the finish time. Don’t worry, your photo will not be shared anywhere, it is needed for verification purposes only.

Run the Charming Budapest Virtual Run results, prizes, gifts

At the event no prizes will be awarded to the participants-a results list will be created for informational purposes only. Results lists will be shared continuously from 16 June. Final results lists will be compiled based on the provided finish times-not all submission will be examined but any submission may be randomly inspected based on the uploaded proof. Clearly unrealistic results will not be part of the results lists. Every participant is responsible for the accuracy of the data they provide.

All participants will be mailed a beautiful Run the Charming Budapest medal – the medal has a rotating inner part. Medals will be shipped to the participants after the event to the address provided upon registration. Optional ordered tshirts will be shipped on the same way, together with the medals. We kindly ask you to enter a valid address where the package can be delivered!

If the completed distance is longer than the previously selected distance, you need to submit the final time of your run, not the split-time needed to accomplish the original distance. If you run a longer distance than the distance you originally registered for, please split your training in two or stop for a moment to take a photo of the app or smartwatch, and only upload to the website the time and proof for the original distance.

If using GPS, we recommend that you check whether the GPS works correctly before and during the run.
There is no separate category for participants in a wheelchair or handcycle during the race.

Bring your cellphone with you in case you need help during the race. This is not a regular BSI event, first aid and medical assistance will not be provided–you need to be able to resolve any problem that might happen during the run.

It is NOT RECOMMENDED to listen to music or any other devices plugged into both ears because you are unable to hear noises from outside.

Run the Charming Budapest Virtual Run information regarding the pandemic

In this time of emergency, we kindly ask you to adhere to the current rules and regulations of your country regarding the social distancing and use protective equipment while training outdoors.
