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


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

Over the years, the route has been changed more than once.

The 2019 edition features two race distances, 5k (one lap) and 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 sad Burešov allotment gardens.

The difference between the lowest and the highest point on the course is about 115 metres.

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.
