The Prague Marathon, also variously known as the Prague International
Marathon or by the sponsor's title of Volkswagen Prague Marathon is
part of a full weekend of athletic events in the Czech capital, which
also includes team and relay marathon races, a Yellow Ribbon Run, 3k
Family minimarathon and even a walk with dogs! There is even a Digital
Marathon, which allows people to take part from the comfort of their
own home using a treadmill and digital social media.
The Prague marathon has been taking place every year since 1995 and is one of the most popular in the world, in no small part thanks to the very scenic course. In excess of 10,000 athletes take part each year and the event is a Boston marathon qualifier.
The main Prague marathon gets underway at 9am from the Old Town Square
and runs on a circuit around the city, ending 26 miles later back in
the Old Town Square. Many of the city's most famous sights are covered
along the marathon route, including:
