The official name of this race is Dudinská Päťdesiatka or Dudinská 50 (Fifty kilometres of Dudince) it is held annually in Dudince, Slovakia.
Dudince is a small spa town (looking forward to try it), closer to Budapest than it is to the Slovakian capital, Bratislava.
HERE you can find out more about this picturesque place, I’ll later write about my experience there as it’s going to be my first time visiting it.

The race this year will be held on March 25th, and the program for the main races is as follows:
-8:30 AM: 50km Men –
Yes! You read it right, 50km (31.06 miles). To put it into perspective, Manhattan is just 21.6km long, which means you’d have to walk it up and down and do about 8km more either into the Bronx or Brooklyn.
-2:00 PM: 20km Men/Women – Still a long but way after reading 50km everything seems manageable.

My idea is to cover both races and the smaller races in between and interview the athletes (once they catch their breath), people watching the race and those helping around.
When am I gonna eat?
Still trying to figure it out.

Oh! Forgot to say that there’s a money price for the winners, all those details can be found on the race manual in case you are interested to see how this works. Just click here: RACE MANUAL

This includes the little "elves" giving water and sponges to the racewalker and the whole organization team. The parents/ teachers who watch the kids and the judges who come from 4 different countries. The security, the medical, the Dudince organization
