Volkswagen Bucharest Half Marathon
Volkswagen Bucharest HALF MARATHON came as a natural brother of the Marathon event. The first edition, back in 2012, gathered around 6000 runners, coming from 35 countries. The 2019 edition hosted over 18000 runners, coming from over 75 countries. In only 8 years, the event got to have one of the highest increasing rate (year to year) in Europe. Certified by the AIMS and fulfilling all the IAAF standards regulations, BHM also hosts the Romanian National Half Marathon Championships. Moreover, the 2020 edition is a IAAF Bronze Label event.
Taking into consideration its actual dimensions and the awareness achieved, the support offered to social causes and the one received from the over 700 volunteers, we could say that the Bucharest HALF MARATHON is having a similar social and economical impact on the community as the Bucharest MARATHON. Bucharest HALF MARATHON is scheduled every year during the May’s second weekend.
