The Běh o 106 is a new mountain running event in the Krušné hory (Ore Mountains), a mountain range on the border between the Czech Republic and Germany.

It's a relatively short (6.6km) yet challenging uphill race (644m of elevation gain).

The route begins at an elevation of 589m in the old spa and mining town of Jáchymov which is situated less then twenty kilometres from the world-famous spa of Karlovy Vary (Carlsbad).

The race takes the runners on forest trails and ski slopes up to the finish on the summit of Klínovec, the highest peak of the mountain range (1244m).

Last year, 50 runners took part in the inaugural Běh o 106.

This year, the organizers intend to offer also a 16km race with about 900m of ascent and 250m of descent (Běh o 106 MAXI) but it will only be held if there are at least ten entries for this route.

The 16km race will be cancelled if there are less than ten entrants. In that case, all runners will be registered for the 6.6km race.

 

Update (24 May 2016): So far, 13 runners have registered for the Běh o 106 MAXI.
