This Night Run is held annually in Olomouc, a very beautiful old city of about 100,000 people, located in Moravia in the eastern part of the Czech Republic.

The event offers kids races, a 2k Family Run, a 5k race (one lap), a 10k race (two laps) and a 2x5k relay.

The route winds its way through two public parks, Smetanovy sady (Smetana Park) and Čechovy sady (Čech Park), both founded almost 200 years ago.

Participants must wear a čelovka (headlamp) during the race.
