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 challenging and scenic up-and-down loop through forests and rural scenery in the north-eastern part of the city, starting and finishing at the Dětské centrum Zlín (Children's Centre Zlín).

Each lap includes approximately 120 metres of ascent.

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.
