The Wizz Air Budapest Half Marathon, the Wizz Air Kyiv City Marathon, the Wizz Air Cluj-Napoca Marathon, the Wizz Air Kosice Runway Run and the Wizz Air Skopje Marathon are popular running events among both local professional and amateur runners as well as visitors of the cities.

The title sponsorship of the Wizz Air Debrecen Airport Run once again underlines our commitment to both the Hajdu-Bihar county and active lifestyle and we are sure this unique running event will be popular among experienced as well as beginner runners.
