This Lesní Běh ("Forest Run") takes place in the small town of Říčany which is situated just outside the city limits of Prague.

The event forms part of the Salomon Trail Running Cup 2014, a series of ten challenging running events in the Czech Republic.

Starting and finishing on the edge of town, all races are run entirely on forest trails. The route is undulating to hilly, and some of the trails are rather narrow.

Men between 19 and 59 years of age run 11km (two laps) whereas women, juniors, and older men run 5.7km (one lap). Children run between 350m and 1.7km.

More than 300 runners of all ages took part in the event last year.
