  • 2x5km relay

The start/finish area is at the top end of Letenské sady (Letná Park) which occcupies the southern part of the hill and commands superb views over the city centre.

The 5k race is one lap and the 10k is two laps through the park and along the steep wooded slopes of the hill. The course is partly flat and partly a bit hilly.

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