Prague (Czech Republic), Saturday 27 June 2015
The Citytrail Praha multi-terrain race is staged on Petřin, a green hill in the city centre of Prague, capital of the Czech Republic.
The race is 11km long and very challenging as it features 500m of ascent.
Starting and finishing on the hill, competitors run two laps of a scenic course on mixed terrain (asphalt, cobbles, trails and stairs) through parks, gardens, woods and orchards.
The route visits various sights such as the Strahov Monastery (pictured), the Štefánik Observatory, and the medieval Hunger Wall, and it offers marvellous views of Prague Castle and of the picturesque Malá Strana quarter below.
It is possible to run just one lap of the course (5.5km) or to form a team of two runners and run the race as a relay (2 x 5.5km).
Last year, 277 runners completed the 11km course.
The fastest finishers were Vít Pavlišta (39min 18sec) and Pavla Zahálková (46min 59sec). The time limit to finish the race is 90 minutes.
