The Nhood running team has excelled again
After the successful completion of the Wizz Air Budapest Half Marathon, the Nhood running team was joined by two new members.
On the second weekend of October, one of the largest recreational sporting events in Hungary, the Budapest Marathon Festival, was organized. A special feature of the race is that participants can choose the most suitable distance for themselves from 11 different competitions. Nothing proves the popularity of the event better than the fact that more than thirteen thousand entries were received for the two-day running festival this year. On Saturday, family programs and shorter-term races were held, while on Sunday, 30-kilometer, relay runners and marathoners trampled the streets of the capital.
Of course, the Nhood running team could not miss out on the opportunity to participate in the prestigious sporting event. Moreover, this time, in excess of last year’s staff, ten of our colleagues entered the competition. The entry fee was again courtesy of Nhood Services Hungary Kft.
On Saturday, real autumn weather awaited our competitors. Mercédesz Tóth, Réka Horváth, Beatrix Mihálovics, Angéla Somogyi-Végh, Balázs Gábosy, Gergely Fonay, Sándor Csongor, István Skodnitz and Gábor Tyukos ran the distance of 5 or 10 km in cool, but sunny weather. On Sunday, however, rain and temperatures of 6-7 degrees welcomed participants. Our company's thirteen-time marathon runner, Márton Valovics, completed the more than 42 km at a good pace, despite the harsh weather conditions.
After the run, our colleagues celebrated the joint run with a nice lunch again.
As mentioned before, for Nhood, participation in running competitions is not only a team-building activity, but also a great way to promote our approach to the well-being of people and the planet. Therefore, we sincerely congratulate all our runners for their exemplary performance!
