Why Vltava Run
Our friends from Nike who have been regularly participating in the legendary Hood To Coast (a 199-mile relay race in Oregon, USA, with over 1,000 teams participating) spread their excitement and made us wonder whether there’s enough space for a race like this in the Czech Republic. And we agreed that there is! We launched the preparations and now we are happy to present VLTAVA RUN.
Vltava Run is a relay race from Šumava to Prague, with its 360-kilometre course leading along hiking paths and country roads. It leads through the Šumava National Park, along rivers and ponds, through the woods, along reservoirs on the Vltava river, through beautiful valleys, over hills, and through the historic towns and picturesque villages of southern and central Bohemia. Simply put, it takes the most beautiful path towards the finish line.
