The Pečecká desítka is a popular 10k race that has been held every year since 1980 in Pečky, a small town of about 4,500 people, located near the town of Kolín in the Czech Republic, approximately 50km to the east of Prague.
Last year, almost 1,100 athletes finished the 10k race, 200 children took part in the kids' races through the ‘Park Svobody’, and 20 runners participated in the 1-mile fun run.
Starting and finishing at Pečky's fire station, the 10k route runs out and back through agricultural areas and through the village of Ratenice. The turning point is on the edge of the village of Cerhenice. The course is mostly flat.
