This Sunday: Volkswagen Prague Marathon

The Prague Marathon is returning! One of the seven fastest marathons in the world will take place on Sunday, May 8. 

This world-class event was launched in 1995 under the patronage of legendary Olympic champion Emil Zátopek. The stunning marathon course is flat and fast attracting runners from all over the world.

“Previous covid interruptions of city runs have severely affected not only the organizers but also the business community that benefits so much from the throngs of people the races draw. So we are looking forward to seeing Prague streets filled with thousands of active people, especially after this long break,” says Vít Šimral, Prague’s councilor for sports.

For the first time in its history, the Volkswagen Prague Marathon will introduce the Battle of the Teams for ALL RUNNERS. The final results will be announced with the last runner who crosses the finish line at the after-party in hotel Hilton Prague.

Key points are earned using the points system of the RunCzech running league, which is based on existing world athletics tables.

Each of the six teams will have four elite professionals and the rest will be joined by thousands of enthusiasts. More info here
