Josefský běh - runners in the hills above Zlín (Copyright © 2016 Hendrik Böttger /


The Josefský běh is a multi-terrain running event held annually around Saint Joseph's Day (19 March) in the city of Zlín in the Czech Republic.

Two race distances are available, a 5k (one lap) and a 10k (two laps).

The route is a hilly and scenic loop through forests and rural scenery in the north-eastern part of the city, starting and finishing at the Čiperova vila, a protected cultural monument.

From the course, there are fine views of Zlín, a city of functionalist architecture, built around the Bata Shoes company which Tomáš Baťa founded there in 1894.
