Found in the Buda hills, Normafa is popular with locals and its clean air provides the perfect running environment. A number of paths offer a range of routes; jog from Normafa to the Elizabeth Lookout Tower on János-hegy and back for a route of approximately 5k (3.1 miles), which offers spectacular views over Budpapest and a combination of flat and hilly terrain – with the final stretch up to the lookout tower providing a steep incline.
Starting and ending at the Gellért Thermal Baths, this route is perfect for anyone hoping for some post run relaxation. Run up Gellért Hill to the Citadella, enjoying panoramic views over Budapest, before heading back down to the thermal baths. With both an incline and decline featured in this run, it’s a short but challenging route with a flexible distance depending on the path chosen.
