Přední Výtoň (Czech Republic), Saturday 2 May 2015

Lipno Reservoir, Czech Republic (Copyright © 2015 Hendrik Böttger / runinternational.eu)


This running and inline skating event is staged at the Lipno Reservoir (Vodní nádrž Lipno), the Czech Republic's largest lake, located at an elevation of 725 metres above sea level in the Bohemian Forest (Šumava) mountain range near the borders with Austria and Germany.

Lipno is a popular holiday destination for cyclists and inline skaters as the lake is encircled by beautiful cycleways and woods.

The children's races and the 10k race (Výtoňská desítka) begin and end in the village of Přední Výtoň on the southern shore.

The 10k is an out-and-back run to the Lipno Dam, an impressive 300-metre-long dam across the Vltava river.

Participants in the half marathon (Lipenský půlmaraton) take the bus from Přední Výtoň to Frýdava and then the ferry (included in the entry fees) to get to the start in the town of Frymburk on the northern shore.

Starting at 9.30am, they run eastwards to the Lipno Dam and then westwards along the southern shore — passing the finish area in Přední Výtoň — to Frýdava, from where they run back to the finish.
