Boží Dar (Czech Republic), Saturday 25 June 2016
The Horský půlmaraton Krušné hory is the second in a series of three multi-terrain running events that are held between May and October in three different mountain ranges in the Czech Republic.
The event offers a 10k race (závod na 10km), a half marathon (půlmaraton) and a kids' race (dětský závod).
All races begin and end on the edge of Boží Dar, the highest town in the country.
Sitting at an elevation of 1028 metres on the ridge of the Ore Mountains (Czech: Krušné hory; German: Erzgebirge), a 130km-long mountain range that stretches along the Czechia-Germany border, Boží Dar is a very small and pretty town of just over 200 inhabitants, popular with skiers in the winter and hillwalkers in the summer.
Both the 10k and the half marathon are very scenic and hilly runs through beautiful forests and moorland, mainly on gravel roads and trails.
The half marathon also takes the runners through the old mining village of Zlatý Kopec which is, according to the last census in 2011, home to one resident.
