Cluj Arena

Cluj Arena will be the new home ground of "U" Cluj football team. The stadium is built on the same location as the old stadium Ion Moina, next to Somes River and close to the Central Park and is able to accomodate 30.596 spectators in two-tier covered stands.

You can get to Cluj Arena by various means of transport, from the bike right up to the public transport. 1500 parking places will be available there (300 underground).

Lets hope that the stadium will be done by July and "U" Cluj will play there starting this autumn.

Cluj Marathon - race revisited

I have no idea what does it mean and take to run a marathon. Not even a half marathon. I know only how far it takes and sometimes how long it takes.

We all heard about "Nenikekamen!". Also, about Pheidippides running from Marathon to Athens, Haile Gebrselassie winning 4 times consecutively the Berlin Marathon, Abebe Bikila running barefoot in Rome, Katrin Dorre Heining and, of course, Constantina-Dita Tomescu.

Lately, some friends put the work aside and started to run. That’s why, sometimes I know the heart rate of a runner and most of the times I hear about that great feeling of the blood pumping through the whole body during the run and about that awesome high you get about an hour after the run that you can tackle whatever life throws at you.

Last Sunday, our hometown hosted the Cluj International Marathon with 4 races: marathon, halfmarathon, popular race and children race.

Here are some old friends who took part in the running adventure. Chapeau, my friends!
