The Ostrava City Marathon takes runners through the central parts of Ostrava, the third-largest city in the Czech Republic.

Built on coal and steel, Ostrava is a lively place and well worth a visit for its immense industrial heritage, its many cultural events, top-class ice hockey matches and, of course, it's marathon.

The event hosts races for every level of runner:

  • 2.1km mini marathon (non-competitive fun run)
  • 10km
  • 21.1km half marathon
  • 42.2km marathon
  • 6 x 6km relay

Starting and ending on Masarykovo náměstí, the main square, the full marathon is four laps of a mainly flat course which runs through the city centre, through the Komenského sady park, along the Ostravice river and around the Slezskoostravský hrad (Silesian Ostrava Castle).

The above photo shows runners passing the Nová radnice which features the tallest town hall tower in the Czech Republic.
