The Krkonošská padesátka is the fourth race of the Kilpi Trail Running Cup (KTRC), a series of nine running events, to be held between April and November 2017 at nine different locations in the Czech Republic.

The event offers three races (5km, 21km, 50km) through the Krkonoše, the highest mountain range in the country, situated on the border with Poland.

Be prepared for a real challenge! The 5km route features approximately 200m of ascent, the 21km route 1,600m and the 50km ultra marathon 2,400m!

All three routes begin and end in the ski resort of Špindlerův Mlýn (German: Spindlermühle) which sits at an elevation of about 700m on the banks of the Labe (Elbe), one of Central Europe's major rivers (but still a small stream in these parts).

The highest point on the 50km course (and on the 21km course as well) is at an elevation of about 1,300 metres.

Last year's event recorded 348 finishers. The entry limit is 400 runners.
