Bucharest Running Club is the organiser of the largest outdoor sport events in Romania. It has two major mass races each year: the half marathon in May and the marathon in October. As it's spring time, last weekend we met at the start of the 21 km race. The streets of Bucharest were crowded by thousands of runners who faced this huge challenge. Kenyan runners stepped on the top of the podium but for us, organisers and speakers, all the finishers can be called as heroes. I'm happy to see many smiling faces crossing the finish line. It was my task to offer multilingual presentation on the main stage, including all the official programmes and the awards ceremonies. Such an honour, many thanks and congratulations!

This year's Raiffeisen Bank Bucharest Marathon had a sold-out status as all the 16 thousand registration tickets were taken very early. The Romanian capital city showed its greatness in a mixture of wide boulevards and popular tourist attractions. The finish area is placed each year on the Constitution Square, just in front of the Palace of the Parliament, one of the largest buildings on Earth. About the results: it was the Moroccan Mohamed Chaaboud who won the 42.195 km race in 2:17:18, while Mekkonen Serkalem Mengiste, representing Ethiopia, set the best time in the women's category (2:37:44). It was a great honour and also pleasure to take part in this event as a multilingual presenter. Congratulations to all the people involved and many thanks for the great atmosphere!

I took the flight Vienna-Bucharest on Saturday, right after the triathlon where I worked on that day, to arrive on time to the Romanian capital for the Half Marathon scheduled for Sunday. It was worth it. The event gathered thousands of runners at the start and there was a lot to celebrate at the finish as well because Yerga Berihun (Ethiopia) set a new track record (1:00:55). It was a great atmosphere out there, people were cheering on the runners on the entire course. I will be back in October for the marathon in the same city. Can't wait!

Just another great story in Bucharest. At the 15th edition it was a Romanian athlete who managed to cross the line first at the end of those challenging 42.195 km. Alexandru Corneschi had a fantastic season and he crowned it with a performance of 2:15:58, the best one on this sunny day. But there were many other heroes on that day. More than 8 thousand runners participated in one of the classic events in Bucharest, which means that both the half-marathon and the 10 km race were very popular.

Just one day after Eliud Kipchoge's record of completing the marathon distance under 2 hours, Bucharest has also seen a new track record set by Hosea Kipkosgei (2:10:50). At the 12th edition of the marathon, more than 20 thousand people came to participate. I was glad to present the races this time as well.

I have just told Paolo, the race director of the running events in Bucharest, that he is like Christmas and Easter in my life. I always know that I meet him twice a year: at the half marathon in May and at the marathon in October. It was a pleasure and of course an honour to be a part of the event this season as well. The organizers and the young volunteers have gathered a lot of experience and I can see that the race is growing year by year. Congratulations to all the people who got involved, and of course all the athletes who came to run on the streets of Bucharest. We had more than 10,000 participants on Sunday! What a nice weekend!

At the 10th edition of the Raiffeisen Bank Bucharest Marathon, a new track record was set by a kenyan athlete. Duncan Cheruiyot Koech crossed the finish line in 2 hours 13 minutes 13 seconds. Congratulations! The women's race was won by an Ethiopian runner, while host country Romania had a bronze medal as Ana Rodean finished third. It was another superb experience for me. This race is a special event as it involves many volunteers and has a great organizing team. I enjoy it anytime I have the honor to commentate the competition. It's nice to be a part of it.

Bucharest Running Club held its 6th Half Marathon in the Romanian capital city. This time, a number of 14,000 runners participated in the event, taking part in one of the competitions scheduled for Sunday: 21 km, 10 km, 3 km. We had some great vibe, an epic atmosphere as a lady from the host country, Ancuta Bobocel, managed to win the Half-Marathon in front of the home crowd. The winner of the men's competition, an athlete from Ethiopia, has set a new competition record, 1:01:08.

I had the honor to be the multilingual announcer of the Raiffeisen Bank Bucharest Marathon for the third time. Over 14,000 participants came to complete the 42,195 km run, which is a new record of attendance.

I had the honor to present the  OMV Petrom Bucharest Half Marathon, held in the Romanian capital on 15 May 2016.

The 8th edition of the Bucharest Marathon can simply described as a special race. This year, at least two records were broken. Over 11,000 participants came to run on the streets of the Romanian Capital and the fastest among them managed to set a new track record. Patrick Kimeli from Kenya crossed the line in 2 hours 13 minutes and 15 seconds. I was appointed to present the event in 4 languages and I definitely enjoyed it.

It doesn't happen too often, but the central streets of Bucharest were closed on Sunday. The only reason was the 4th edition of the OMV Petrom Bucharest Half Marathon, where 10.000 runners participated in a major event. It was the Kenyan athlete Peter Emase who won the 21 km race. The amateur runners had the opportunity to choose from 4 different distances: 3.5 km, 10.5 km, 21 km individual or relay. It was an enjoyable competition with some interesting exhibitions, entertainment and a concert which closed the event in the afternoon. Congratulations to all the finishers!

I had the honor to present two high-class events on a single day. On the 5th of October, over 8.000 runners participated in the Raiffeisen Bank Bucharest International Marathon. It was also the last race of Constantina Dita (photo), olympic champion in Beijing 2008. In the evening, many famous journalists, athletes and federation resp. club leaders came to show they respect for Constantina at her retirement gala in Hotel Hilton Bucharest. It was great being there!
