Grand finale of the summer challenge Česko běží dál will take place on the first weekend in September. You can choose from several courses, including a family-run and there will also be a race for the little ones.
The unique running challenge organized by RunCzech started in June and will end on Sunday, September 6.
The challenge “Česko běží dál” (Czech Republic keeps on running) has been a unique way of getting runners all across the country to compete at various distances from 5K through 125K, not virtually but on real courses – a new kind of mixed reality.
The main challenge was to run a total of 125 kilometers whenever you’re able, on any of the 5K FreeRun courses over a period of 90 days. People could also choose to run distances from 5 to 40 km.
The foundation for this project was laid a few years ago when RunCzech created the FreeRun program – a community service project that aims to make running more accessible and more fun for more people. 90 running courses, each 5K long and certified by the Czech Athletics Federation were created to crisscross the entire country.
All of them extremely comfortable for runners, all carefully maintained and staffed with an experienced running coach. The network of courses is managed and navigated using the RunCzech app.
Each participant will receive a digital diploma, and those who complete the entire 125K challenge will receive a special digital medal.
