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 a 5k race (one lap) and a 10k race (two laps).

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.
