Praha (Prague), Czech Republic, Saturday 14 October 2017
Now in its 54th year, the Pražský maraton in Praha (Prague) is the second-oldest marathon race in the Czech Republic, after the Ostrava Marathon.
The race is ten laps of an IAAF/AIMS-certified and mostly-flat course through 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 marathon route runs on asphalt paths 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.
In case you don't feel like running a 42.195km marathon, grab a partner and run the race as a relay (2 x 21.1km).
Last year, Jan Pernica (2:44:31) and Radka Churaňová (3:03:02) led a field of 157 marathon runners and eight relay teams across the finish line. The time limit to complete the course is five hours.
