The Česko-německý půlmaratón ('Czech-German Half Marathon') is a multi-terrain running event held in the Český les (German: Oberpfälzer Wald), a mountain range that stretches along the border between Czechia and Germany.

Starting and finishing in the municipality of Nemanice on the Czech side of the border, the 21km race features a challenging route which takes the runners through lovely countryside and through several abandoned villages that were demolished after World War Two as the authorities deemed them too close to the Iron Curtain.

The event also offers a 5km run which is much less hilly than the half marathon.
