Prague (Czech Republic), Saturday 15 October 2016
Now in its 53rd year, the Pražský maraton in Prague is the second-oldest marathon race in the Czech Republic, after the Ostravský maraton in Ostrava.
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 race is ten laps of an IAAF/AIMS-certified and mostly-flat course.
Participants run on asphalt roads through the park and along a canal, passing a lovely pond, 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, Jaroslav Dražan (2:39:29) and Radka Churaňová (2:54:39) led a field of 202 runners across the finish line. The time limit to complete the course is five hours.
This year, the event will also be open to two-person relay teams (2 x 21.1km).
