The start and the finish are at the modern Škodaland sports complex which is situated at a reservoir in the southern part of Plzeň (Pilsen), the city where Emil Škoda founded the Škoda Works in 1859, and which is well known for its outstanding Pilsner beer.

The half marathon route takes the runners through rural areas and villages between Plzeň and the town of Dobřany in the Okres Plzeň-jih (Plzeň-South District).

It's a very challenging route. The difference between the lowest and the highest point on the course is almost 100 metres. Overall, the race features 373 metres of ascent.
