The Szent Jakab Zarándok Association in the memory of Ferenc Kazinczy, in 2016 for the 8th time organizes the event of a
200 km long ultra trail running and
200, 3 x 100, 4 x 50 and 20 km long endurance trails.
The track contains 4 x 50 km long parts, all in the Zemplén.
Ferenc Kazinczy was born in 1759, 257 years ago in Regmec, Hungary. He gave the name “Széphalom” to the little village, Bányácska, he was living in. Here stands his grave, and here is the first museum of language in the world, the Museum of Hungarian Language.
The race starts from the Museum on Friday 9 AM. Before the start (at 8.30 AM) there will be a small commemoration. During the race we can see the estate once owned by the Kazinczy family in Regmec, where the writer was arrested in 1794 after which he was condemned to death but the sentence was changed to imprisonment and he was held captive for a long time.
