Prague Marathon

Prague, oh Prague, what a unique city! The marathon (which also offers a 2 person relay, so technically you could run a half marathon if you had a partner) is picturesque, to say the very least. This city is amazing. Every corner you turn requires a photo and looks like something out of a fairy tale. Imagine how pleasantly distracted you would be with all of this beauty, the river, the spectators, this medieval city all passing by you as you run along (this is also a fast course!).

We will stay in Prague for 7 nights. While there is plenty to do in the city – parks with amazing views, delicious local gastronomical delights, museums, famous sites – we will also take you out to the beautiful countryside where you can experience the beauty of the Czech Republic in nature…and we’ll stop by a brewery for a tour and tasting so you can entice all of your senses.
