Lovers of sports and a healthy lifestyle should get their hands on the calendar. RunCzech has opened registrations for next year’s most prestigious running events.

The 2024 season will traditionally kick off with the world-famous Prague Half Marathon (April 6) and Prague International Marathon (May 5).

“We were very pleased to hear the words of praise from people from the World and European Athletics, professional runners, enthusiasts and fans. They let us know loud and clear that they enjoyed our runs and they look forward to next year,” said Carlo Capalbo, President of the RunCzech Organising Committee, whose races have been awarded with the World Athletics Elite Label Race.

Beautiful cities, spectacular and fast routes, professional organisation and an unforgettable atmosphere. These are the reasons why RunCzech races are loved everywhere in the world. This year, tens of thousands of runners of all ages and performance categories have already participated in the races across the Czech Republic. And the Mattoni Liberec Nature Run is yet to take place on September 30th.

Indeed, the Prague Half Marathon and the Prague International Marathon were the most popular races. They have also been highly acknowledged by the Czech President Petr Pavel who has also promised the races great support in the future.

“Sporting events of this kind are a great opportunity to present our country to the world,” said the Czech President in May, when he started this year’s 27th edition of the Prague International Marathon. This race also included the unique Battle of the Teams project, which turns a purely individual discipline into a team sport by linking the times of elite and amateur runners.

After the starts in Prague, the RunCzech series moves to other cities. Only two weeks after the Prague International Marathon, the Mattoni Half Marathon Karlovy Vary will take place (May 18), followed by the Mattoni Half Marathon České Budějovice (June 1) and the Mattoni Half Marathon Olomouc (June 15). The first half of the season will be closed by the popular UniCredit Prague Relay (June 25 and 26).

After the summer break, the races will return to the Czech capital city. On September 7, the Birell Grand Prix Prague will take place, including the adidas Women’s 5 k Run and the Birell 10 k Run. Mattoni Half Marathon Ústí nad Labem (September 21) and Mattoni Liberec Nature Run will follow, with registration opening later this month.

The kids or their parents and grandparents can also join the races in the form of the dm family mile. Family runs are part of the Prague International Marathon and all regional races. When registering for individual events, all runners can again support various foundations and charitable funds.
