(ENG) 8/100 race calendar

I plan to run eight races in eight countries in 100 days. I've already booked all the races, except the one in Grecce. Here's my race calendar:

29.01 Portugal, Fim Da Europa 2017. Sintra-Cabo da Roca. 17K, the first 4 are noticeably uphill. Picturesque scenery and finish "where the land ends and the sea begins" (Camoens).

13.12 Spain, EDreams Mitja de Barcelona 2017. This HM features current world record holder Florence Kiplagat in the women's elite group, Bronze label from IAAF, and >13th. participants.

26.02 Greece. To be announced. I wanted to take part in the Lycabettus Hill Run, but it was postponed until March. There's a race in the region of Marathon - will see if I can roll in.

05.03 France. Fitbit Semi de Paris 2017. 40 000 participants in the heart of France. O la la!

19.03 Croatia, Zagreb 21 - spring HM in Zagreb. There seems to be some issue with organization at the moment, but the race will take place anyway.

09.04 Hungary, 32nd Telekom Vivicitta Spring Half Marathon. The most prominent landmarks of Budapest along the way, and a chance to have the famous thermal bath as a post-race recovery!

22.04 Austria. 34 Vienna City Marathon. The motto for this marathon race is "The theatre of emotions". However, my running schedule does not allow for  full marathon this spring, so I've enrolled for a 10K, which takes place a day earlier. The latter, I hope, will allow me to take good photos the next day at the marathon course.

07.05 Italy. Last, but not least - Wings for Life World Run Milan. I was happy to be part of this unique multi-country event in 2016 in Kolomna, Russia, and I'm excited to try it in Italy.
