Zlín (Czech Republic), Saturday 28 March 2015
The Josefský běh is a challenging multi-terrain 10k race, held in the green hills in the north-eastern part of the city of Zlín in the Czech Republic.
Competitors run on asphalt roads, gravel roads and trails out and back through woods and farmland.
Roughly speaking, the first 2.5km are uphill (+120m), the next 2.5km downhill (-100m), then uphill again (+100m) and downhill to the finish (-120m).
The turning point is in the village of Přiluky, which is still within the city limits.
The route offers fine views of Zlín, a city of functionalist architecture, built around the Bata Shoes company which Tomáš Baťa founded there in 1894.
