In recent years runs have become ever more popular in the Tokaj wine region – and in the next month there are 2 excellent opportunities to fly through the harvest vineyards – and enjoy pitstops of fresh must! Real sugar!
On 26th István Szepsy will start the run from Mád-Tállya Run at the Rákóczi-Aspremont mansion – home to Barta Winery – to another former Rákóczi property, the villa in Tállya. It is organised by the local Tállyáért Egyesület Association as part of the St Vincent Day celebration and Autumn Tállya Festival.
Start: 11 am, in Mád at Barta Winery, in front of the Rákóczi-Aspremont mansion
Finish: Rákóczi-kúria in Tállya
Distance: 7 km between the two mansions
And then on Sunday 11th October runners preparing for the marathon in Miskolc , as well as less expert sport lovers of all ages, will gather at the Disznókő estate for the 3rd Disznókő Run. A variety of distances from mini (5.2 km) to half marathon but guaranteed to draw a crowd. This run coincides with the October Tokaj-Hegyalja Market on the estate and All Saints’ Merriment in Bodrogkeresztúr the day before.
So, time to put on running shoes?
