"Based on our three years' experience we can say that the competition has become a popular event of Kaposvár University. Teams of students and teaching staff are also eagerly preparing for the competition"
explained György Szerb, chief organizer at the press conference.
This year's competition will include a so-called Dogs Cross race, where dogs and their owners can get over the obstacles together. It is also a significant improvement that the organizers have signed an agreement with the Hungarian OCR Association, so the 3rd KE Cross Run will be an official Hungarian championship race.
"This means that there will be more challenging obstacles that will require serious physical effort. Thanks to this, the international standard will also be introduced"
György Szerb added.
Since last year the race has been included in the official sports of the Hungarian University and College Sports Association, Hungarian Champions will also be crowned at the 3rd Cross Run for the second time on the 6th of April.
Just as before, the event is co-organised by the Hungarian Defence Forces, they will offer additional activities for participants.
"In addition, we also intend to recruit voluntary reserve soldiers"
stressed Major Jenő Horváth and Lieutenant Colonel László Nevelős.
The 3rd KE Cross Run has already reached a record number of entries, as organisers have received about four hundred applications so far.
