Green Race - Rational travel and transportation
As an environmental conscious organization, Unix made a commitment to keep ecological footsteps of their races as small as possible. In order to reach this goal, besides the selective waste management and the reuse of plastic glasses we try to transfer our racers rationally. Balatonfüred is easily accessible from both Budapest and the nearby towns (e.g. from Veszprém or Székesfehérvár), therefore we encourage everyone to travel to us by public transportation and simply leave their cars home. This way you can protect the environment, and on the other hand we do not need to play hide and seek among 60-70 cars on the venue.
