The Festivalový půlmaraton Zlín 2016 ("Festival Half Marathon Zlín") will be held on the second day of the 56th Zlín Film Festival (27 May - 3 June 2016), a highly-respected international event for film fans of all ages.

Entrants can choose between the čtvrtmaraton (10.5km quarter marathon), the půlmaraton (21.1km half marathon), the štafetový půlmaraton (4 x 5.25km half marathon relay) or the rodinný běh (1.4km family run).

The start and the finish are on the main square of Zlín, an industrial city that stretches along the valley of the River Dřevnice in Moravia in the eastern part of the Czech Republic.

Participants in the half marathon run two laps of a mostly-flat 10.5km-long loop course. A few sections are undulating.

The route runs along both banks of the river as well as through the factory grounds where Tomáš Baťa founded the Bata Shoes company in 1894 (pictured).
