Dear friends, Despite all our efforts unfortunately we couldn’t assure Tusnadmarathon’s financial background for this year and because we didn’t want to reduce the quality of the race either, we had to made the painful decision of cancelling the 2020 race. For those runners, who were about to bring their registration from last year (2019), of course we will pay back their registration fee. So we kindly ask those runners who are affected by this to send an e-mail to the and please also include the bank account number where we could transfer the money and we will send back the payed registration fee within a couple of days. We would like also to thank to all of you, the runners for showing such a confidence in Tusnadmarathon during the last couple of years as you did. Without you it wouldn’t become the fantastic, unique race as it did. Runners came to this beautiful part of Szeklerland for a good run not only from Romania and Hungary but for example f...

New date – 18. May 2019

DATE OF THE RACE IS CHANGED!: In recent days we received information which left us no other choice unfortunately than to move the date of the race one more week earlier than the original announced date was. The new date of the race: 18. May 2019. Same as the time of the first date change (due to the Pope’s visit), we were forced to make this decisions -due to circumstances which cannot be controlled by us- this time as well, but of course we would like to apologize for all the caused inconveniences, and we hope that the new date will work out for most of you. Those ones however for whom the new date is not good, and already registered for the race, please write an e-mail for us at, and we will put your registration for next year’s race. Thank you for your understanding, and we hope that we will have a great race on the 18th May as well!

New date

When we designed the logo of this year’s race -having the catholic church of Tusnad on it- we had no idea that it will have such a strong magnetic effect, that it will even catch the attention of the pope itself.  But putting aside the humour, most of you are already informed most probably, that the head of the Roman Catholic Church will visit, first time ever in history, Transylvania on the 1st June 2019. Pope Francis will celebrate an open air mass only 35 km from Tusnad, on the same day when the 11 HRI Vitalion Tusnad Marathon was announced last summer. This unforeseen event brings so many changes (eg. due to the huge traffic expected, we can’t get route licence for the race neither for the 1st nor the 2nd June.) that we had no other choice than put the race on another weekend. The new date of the race: 25. May 2019. Starting package and ordered merchandising items can be picked up in the race centre in Tusnad on 24. May 2019 17:00-20:00, or on 25. May 2019 7:30-9:00. W...
