The Nymburský půlmaraton (‘Nymburk Half Marathon’) in the Czech Republic features a scenic course along both banks of the River Elbe (Czech: Labe).

The event offers a 10km race and a half marathon, starting and finishing at the old town walls of Nymburk, a town of 15,000 people, situated about 50km east of Prague.

Participants in the half marathon run two laps of the 10km course. The second lap includes a short out-and-back section along the river to make it a half marathon.

Although the route is mostly flat and fast on asphalt cycle paths it is a rather challenging race as the competitors have to run up and down the stairways of two Elbe bridges — 60 stairs at one bridge and then 30 stairs at the other bridge.

Nevertheless, with a generous time limit of two hours for the 10k and three hours for the half marathon the event is suitable for runners of all abilities.
