The Pardubický vinařský půlmaraton (Pardubice Wine Half Marathon) is held annually in spring in Pardubice, a city of 90,000 people, located in a low-lying area on the Labe (Elbe) river, approximaty 100 kilometres east of Czechia's capital Praha (Prague).
In the world of sports, Pardubice is mainly known for its steeplechase horse races and its passionate ice hockey fans but the half marathon has also left its mark with more than 1,000 runners taking part in the race every year.
Starting just outside Pardubice's historic core, participants run two laps of a flat and accurately-measured course through old and modern parts of the city.
At the end of the race, competitors run through the 16th-century zelená brána (Green Gate) to the finish line in front of the magnificent radnice (Town Hall; pictured) on the beautiful Pernštýnské náměstí (Pernštejn Square) in the Old Town.
In addition to the half marathon, the event offers a 10k race and a 1.7k run for runners of all ages.
