The Prague Marathon – officially called the 2024 Volkswagen Prague (Praha) Marathon – is one of the world’s most beautiful marathon races and it’s on a fast course too! We’ve got the answers to some of your most frequently asked questions to help get you to the starting line…
The 2024 Prague Marathon is scheduled for May 5, 2024 in Prague, Czech Republic (see more detailed location info below). The race boasts a field of approximately 10,600 annual participants.
Registration for the Prague Marathon can be done through the official event website here. Please note there are additional options available for teams/relays, a family/kids run, and even a run with dogs!
Assuming the course is similar in 2024 – the start AND finish line will be in the Old Town Square (Staroměstské náměstí) area of Prague. This is a very popular area for tourists and it’s little wonder why the race organizers decided to feature the Old Town so prominently. The marathon route makes its way up and down the Vltava River, crossing back and forth over Prague’s beautiful bridges.
If you can find available lodging, stay in the Old Town Square (Staroměstské náměstí) area of Prague. You’ll be close to the start and finish lines. Additionally, any spectators you might be traveling with will be able to observe the runners at a few different spots on the course if they are willing to walk.
The marathon’s course records are 2:05:39 for men (set by Eliud Kiptanui of Kenya) and 2:19:46 for women (set by Lonah Chemtai Salpeter of Israel).
Here’s a link to our Prague Travel Deals page. You’ll probably want to fly into Václav Havel Airport (PRG) – as this is Prague’s primary international airport located about 16km west of the Old Town/downtown area of Prague.
