Půlmaraton Moravským krasem - the route between Blansko and the Punkva Caves (Copyright © 2014 Hendrik Böttger /


The Půlmaraton Moravským krasem in the Czech Republic is a road running event held in the Moravský kras (Moravian Karst), a protected landscape area with more than 1,000 limestone caves.

All races, the 21.1km půlmaraton (half marathon), the 2.4km běh městem (town run) and the 800m lidový běh (kids and fun run), begin and end on the main square of Blansko, an industrial town of about 20,000 people, situated thirty kilometres north of the city of Brno.

The half marathon route is undulating and consists of two loops through the town centre, followed by an out-and-back run along the steep valley of the Punkva river, passing the Punkevní jeskyně (Punkva Caves), the most popular tourist attraction in the area.

Runners are given three hours to finish the race.
