The Havířská desítka ("Havířov 10k") is a new event, to be held in mid-October 2015 in Havířov, a town of about 75,000 people in the Moravian-Silesian Region in the Czech Republic.

Havířov is a young and very green town, situated in a coal-mining and steel-producing area near Ostrava, the third-largest city in the country.

Three race distances are available — 2.5km and 10km for runners, and 15km for handbikers.

The route is a 2.5km-long loop through the town centre, which was built in the 1950s in the style of socialist realism. The start/finish area is on the main square, náměstí Republiky (pictured above).

The course is mostly flat and fast, and it will be closed to traffic during the race.
