This road running event is held in the venerable Bohemian spa of Karlovy Vary (English: Carlsbad; German: Karlsbad) where many European notables such as Goethe, Beethoven, Mozart, Chopin, Freud and Marx sought exercise and inspiration.
The start and the finish are on the edge of Smetanovy sady (Smetana Park) which is home to the monumental Alžbětiny Lázně (Elizabeth Baths), the largest balneological facility in the city:
The half marathon course is gently undulating and consists of three loops. The first and the third loop take the runners along the Teplá river through the spa area with its many magnificent historic buildings. The second loop runs through residential areas to the KV Arena, Karlovy Vary's state-of-the-art hockey arena, which is situated on the western outskirts of the city.
