Prague (Czech Republic), Saturday 17 October 2015
Held for more than 50 years, the Maraton Pražská Stromovka in the city of Prague is the oldest marathon race in Bohemia.
The event takes place in Stromovka, an English-style park in the northern part of the city. Also known as Královská obora ("Royal Enclosure"), Stromovka is Prague's largest park, protected as a natural monument.
The route consists of ten laps of a flat and fast and IAAF/AIMS-certified course. The difference between the lowest and the highest point is less than four metres.
Participants run on asphalt roads and footpaths through the park and along a canal, passing two lovely ponds, many beautiful trees and the tennis courts of the TK Sparta Praha, one of the most prestigious tennis clubs in the Czech Republic.
Last year, Martin Kučera (2:32:49) and Ivana Jedličková (3:17:22) led a field of 290 marathon runners across the finish line. The race limit is set at 500 runners. The time limit to complete the course is five hours.
