The Volkswagen Prague Marathon takes place May 6, starting at 9 am at Old Town Square. It will be the 24th edition of the race that has become the most important running event in the country.
The Volkswagen Prague Marathon became the fastest May marathon of all time in 2010 thanks to Eliud Kiptanui’s race record of 2.05:39. The women’s race record of 2:21:57 has been held by Valary Aiyabei since last year.
The Volkswagen Prague Marathon includes traditional side events, such as the Marathon Music Festival, Sports Expo Fair and the short family Minimarathon. It is exactly a tenth of the race, 4.2 km, and is intended for all who want to be part of the marathon but dare not go the whole marathon distance.
