Hi Guys, I am a runner living here in Bucharest looking for support/contacts to train with and share ideas about running in Romania... I am originally from the US, but I have been living and working (and running!) in Europe since 1999. My wife is from Bucharest, and we have been here in Romania since 2005. I am signed up for the DHL marathon in June this year, and would definitely like to do the Bucharest Marathon in October. Are there any other running events going on that you can tell me about? I am also looking for shops in Bucharest where I can find running supplies (gear, gel packets, etc.) Any recommendations? I also try to run races abroad and would like to hear about other races that other people are going to run in... Looking forward to hearing from you guys...

Hello Robert Wieck and welcome to our forum! Unfortunately I live in Timisoara and I canchr(039)t give you informations about shops or finding running supplies in Bucharest. Maybe other guys from this forum can give you more hints. Related to other running events, here in Timisoara we have a marathon on October 12th. Itchr(039)s true that this marathon is in the same day as Bucharest Marathon but I understand from Serban that the Bucharest Marathon is not sure yet because last year they annonced the marathon and after that nothing happened. On the other side Timisoara marathon is at 9th edition and definitely will be held. I donchr(039)t want to convince you for any marathon but I tought that is good to know all aspects. If I will have news regarding other running events I will let you know.

Hi Robert!

Welcome to our forum!
Here you can find a race calendar for Romania - http://www.maraton.info.ro/html/calendar_competitii_.html
Unfortunatelly, the popular races (like Forever Living race, which was today in Herastrau) are not listed there (or maybe just a part of them).
I promise you to put in English section an announcement every time we know about a race.
For sure, wechr(039)ll meet at DHL marathon - lot of people from this forum will be there. Put a picture (avatar) to your registration page, in order to recognise you
We have started to organise running groups, and Ichr(039)ll let you know when we have a meeting. More, we are working to start a marathon club, and you are welcome to join it (in near future).

About shops... hmmm... nasty problem. Please, contact Cornelia David (cornelia_david@yahoo.com), a friend of us who sells Sponser products (like gels, carbs powder, sports drink etc.)
Hope to see you frecvently on this forum

Salut Robert,

I am happy to know that you whant to run in Romania and in few competitions. I am from Bucharest too. For training in Bucharest, Herastrau Park is a very good place. An interesting marathon will be in octomber 5 in Piatra Craiului but is a mountains marathon, for more info check this link: www.maratonpiatracraiului.blogspot.com
It is not in english but for sure you will understand the essential things. Fore more info and details write me on my email: cornelia_david@yahoo.com
Another competition will be next weekend in 18 May in Medias city, there will be a marathon and a 10 km race, if you decide to run next weekend I will give all details to arrive in Medias, we will be there.
Fore sure I will be at DHL marathon; I guess that I will not run all marathon because in 29 of June I will go at Marathon du Mont Blanc.
Gear for running?? are not so many place in Bucharest, could try in Intersport shops.
For gel, bars and energy drinks I will be happy to offer the products from SPONSER

Wow, thank you all for the quick responses.... you really know how to make a guy feel welcome!...

Serban, I noticed the "start" and "finish" arches for the forever living cross only last night as I was driving home past Herastrau Park... had I known a bit earlier, I would have joined in... I will add a picture as soon as I find a good one of me... Count me in for the marathon club...

Really looking forward to the DHL marathon... I have run more than 10 half marathons, but this will be my first full marathon... been training real hard... I ran the DHL half-marathon in 2006.... really looking forward to meet everyone there...

Victor, I live in the North part of Bucharest, near Herastrau, but my parents-in-law live quite close to Tineretului park... if I am ever in that area I will let you know and we can go for a run together...

Cornelia, thanks for the tips on the upcoming runs... Next weekend I will be going up to Riga, Latvia to run in a half-marathon there... Please let me know about other events coming up, as I am always up for something.... Will check out my stocks of gel, carb powder and things and let you know if I need anything...

Thanks to all again for making me feel welcome... I am really glad I found this forum....

hello Robert and welcome to the best marathon forum in Romania !
- since youchr(039)ve already registered to DHL marathon I guess your next best training for you it could be: Transilvania Intchr(039)l Marathon 2008, which will take place next weekend, May 18th, from Sighisoara to Medias ... Technical meeeting: 17.05 evening @ Medias.
- a nice traditionel halfmarathon use to be in the last weekend of July, in Sfantu Gheorghe city (30 km from Brasov).
Stay with maraton.info.ro and youchr(039)ll be informed about next races !

Hi Liviu, Thanks for the tips... much appreciated... Wonchr(039)t be able to join you this weekend Medias, I will be in Riga, Latvia for the Nordea marathon/half-marathon... should be a good race... the course is flat and fast.... I will put the Medias-Sighisoara run in my calendar for next year

About the Sfantu Gheorghe run in end of July, is that happening again this year?... I am running a half-marathon in California in the beginning of July, but would like to do something else in the end of July/early August... let me know if you have some ideas...

Thanks - Robert

Bob,

Welcome aboard!
Last year I have put together a list of independent/local races (aside the ones you can see in the link indicated by Serban - those are organized by the Romanian Athletics Federation=FRA) - you can see and download here (see Shonychr(039)s post).
Many of these races are held on a regular basis, year by year so in 2008 the dates should be close to the 2007 ones.

I ran DHL as relay#4 in 2006, half-M&relay#1 in 2007 and will run it as my first Full-M this year.

In case youchr(039)re tempted by multisports (duathlons/triathlons) I can keep you posted.

Ichr(039)m from Brasov, so whenever youchr(039)re in town and feel like trying some nice trails, let me know.

Cheers!

Thanks Sandor... The list of runs is helpful... looking forward to meet you (and everybody else) at the DHL run... I havenchr(039)t tried any multisports yet, but I was always interested in trying a triathlon... lets discuss We have a house located in Breaza, so I have been doing a lot of running up in that area... the air there is very good... Next time I am up there for a weekend, I will let you know in advance... we can arrange to meet up for a run... cheers!

Robert

See you at DHL then!
Serban will probably setup a meeting point - wechr(039)ll let you know where&when.

In case you wanna see the triathletes & cyclists at work, this saturday in Snagov forest (close to Bucharest) at 10:00 AM the DUATHLON Nationals are taking place.
For directions, ask how to get to the old naval base "Nicolae Navasart".

The only triathlon worth to try is held near Brasov (35 Km north) and itchr(039)s called "3 scaune" cup - tipically held in the first or second weekend of August.

Take care and happy/healthy training!

Hello, Robert ! I found you on the finisher List, so: congratulation! how was the race, in Riga !? Tell us a little bit, please

First thing: you cross the finish line and that’s important. Second: the result is quite acceptable; this remind me about my first half-marathon, in October 2006: two hours and a few minutes - Followed later, in 2007, by another 6 half-marathons -
So ! how is going your training for the DHL marathon !? less than 3 weeks untill Start; are you in line with your programme ?

Hi Liviu! The race in Riga was great... The race itself was pretty well organized... Although, the course was not as interesting as it could have been... the half-marathon consisted of two laps around a not-so-beautiful part of the city... not very interesting from my point of view.... My time of 2:04 was OK for me, but I was hoping to finish in less than 2 hours... But, my clothing choice wasnchr(039)t good on race day... It was raining hard all night before the race, and even in the morning when I woke up... so I opted for a long sleeve shirt... of course, the rain dried up and the weather turned warm, so I was a bit overheated... But, the Riga race has grown over the last few years, and had quite a good turn out... It was very exciting to watch the winner of the marathon finish the race... he beat the previous marathon record by 2 minutes, and took home the cash prize of 10,000 EUR.... It was really exciting...

Training for DHL is going great... I completed a 32km run on Saturday, near Breaza... took me a bit more than 3 hours... now I will start to taper my training and gradually decrease my mileage, in order to "save up" some energy and strength for the race day.... really looking forward to it... it is practically all that I think about these days....

How about you? Are things going according to plan?

Robert

Hi All, hope everyone had fun at the DHL... I managed to finish the Marathon in 4:57, which was great for me... I must say, I am not a big fan of the end of the course... I found it very rough... but it was good to finish... Sorry I did manage to meet up with most of you at the end... I managed to see Sandor at the beginning, and I bumped into Cornelia at the SPONSOR stand.... I had my wife and daughter with me, and we had to leave soon after the I finished the race.... So..

Does anyone have information on the half-marathon in St. Gheorghe on July 26th? Please let me know. Thanks!

Robert
