Are you ready to run? Everything you need to know to enjoy BRF!
We want everything to run perfectly for you at Brașov Running Festival. So here is some information you need to know to enjoy a real show!
For your safety and optimal experience
We have Terms and Conditions that you must accept when you enter the race. But we do have some recommendations that we all need to keep in mind in order to enjoy safe races.
Where does the competition take place?
If this is your first time at Brasov Running Festival, you need to know the event takes place in the Coresi district, more precisely on Camil Petrescu Street (here is both the START and FINISH line). You will find route maps displayed in several places to identify exactly the start and finish points. They are properly marked, and our volunteers will be able to guide you whenever you need.
From the Brașov train station, to get here, there’s a 15 minutes’ walk in a straight line, crossing Tractorul Park.
If you come by car, you have many parking spaces available on Zaharia Stancu Street (Coresi Shopping Resort mall parking), just a 10-minute walk away. There are also parking spaces in the Tractorul Park area, on Turnului Street, but it may be much busier due to other events in the city.
It’s essential to get there ahead of time! We hope to find you energetic and ready to conquer the glory in your newest running equipment! We strongly suggest that you mind your fellow competitors during the race and try not to interfere with anyone’s progress along the way.
Kits pick up
You can find us on Friday between 13:00 - 19:00 and on Saturday between 09:30 - 19:00 at EXPO BRAȘOV RUNNING FESTIVAL. This is located in CS Forex building, at the end of Camil Petrescu Street (the intersection with December 13 Street).
In case you`re only joining us on Sunday, you may pick up your kit between 08:00 - 10:00. Keep in mind that the 5K Open race starts at 09:00.
BIB / Race numbers
All participants must wear the official race number.
Please wear your number on the front of your t-shirt from start to finish, so you can be recognized as an official participant, and grab your race photos later on. If you do not find the Get Pica QR codes attached on the contest number, please do so yourself (they will be in the kit).
The participants’ race numbers are specific personal identifiers, and they may not be exchanged or transferred, given, or sold to any other person. The sale and/or transfer of the race entries/numbers is strictly prohibited. Electronic timing chips are also attached on them. It’s essential to finish the race wearing them!
We provide storage for personal belongings during the race, but please note that we do not store strollers, large bags, bicycles, rollers, etc. We can take care of personal belongings such as sweaters, hats, shoes, and other clothes. We do not take responsibility for valuables (phones, laptops, jewelry, etc.). Wardrobe service is provided by volunteers.
Moving within the festival
We ask you to only use the pedestrian crossings to get from one side of the road to the other, in specially marked areas, and where the competition space is not delimited with fences or tape.
Do not enter the competition route while you assist the race! Even if you are a parent, cheer up your child from the sidelines, not from the race road!
