Held in Olomouc, an old city of about 100,000 people in Moravia in the Czech Republic, this Winter Run offers a 4km race (one lap) and an 8km race (two laps).

The race follows a flat course through two public parks, Smetanovy sady (Smetana Park) and Čechovy sady (Čech Park).

Running along the 710m-long main avenue of the beautiful Smetana Park (pictured above) is one of the memorable highlights of this race.

The start/finish area is at the Výstaviště Flora Olomouc (Flora Olomouc Exhibition Grounds), about 750 metres from Horní náměstí, the main square (pictured below).

Last year, the two races combined had 164 finishers. Many more runners are expected to take part in the event this year.

The time limit to finish the race is 90 minutes.
