The Mezinárodní Festival Běhu (‘International Running Festival’), or in short MFB, is held annually in June in Kolín, a town of about 31,000 people, located approximately 60 kilometres east of Prague.

All three races, the 15k, the 7k and the 1.8k Dlouhá míle (‘long mile’) are very scenic, starting at the church of St Bartholomew in the town centre (pictured) and finishing at the amphitheatre on Kmochův ostrov, a green island in the River Elbe, situated a 15-minute walk from the start area.

Participants run through Kolín's very pretty Old Town, along the Elbe (Czech: Labe) and through woods and rural areas.
