Held in the birth place of the world-renowned Budweiser beer the Mattoni České Budějovice Half Marathon is one of the most exciting races in the Czech Republic, being a part of RunCzech Running League. Not only does it offer a flat and fast course, which led to a record breaking half marathon premiere in 2012, but also charms with its great scenery and enthusiastic spectators! For the year 2014 it has been awarded the Silver IAAF Road Race Label, thus placing České Budějovice alongside such cities as Toronto, Osaka, Madrid, Venice and Hong Kong on the IAAF (International Association of Athletics Federations) race calendar.
The 3rd race edition will take place on Saturday, 7 June 2014, 7PM at Přemysla Otakara II Square with over 2800 participants. This year thousands of the runners will have an opportunity to run together with the world half marathon champion - Geoffrey Kamworor (Copenhagen, 2014)!
Besides being a professional sport event, the Mattoni České Budějovice Half Marathon is also a social fair enabling families and amateur runners to spend a fun and active weekend together. The participants may choose to complete the full half marathon (21.0975 km) take part in accompanying races of Relay (a team of 4), 2 Run (a team of 2) or Family Run (3 km).
Crossing the Finish line on Saturday evening inspires to prolong active or a rewardingly passive weekend discovering the beauty of the city and other places of the region, some of which have been listed as UNESCO heritage.
