Press Release| Prague, August 24, 2022

The most romantic races of the year are here! The atmosphere of the Birell Prague Grand Prix will be unique


The atmosphere of magical dusk in Prague and thousands of excited runners and spectators. This is going to be an experience to remember. Birell Prague Grand Prix races will take place in the city center on September 3rd and no one should miss them. The 5 km adidas Women’s  race will start at 6 pm, followed by the Birell 10K Race at 7:30 pm. “This is the most romantic running event of the season. Runners will enjoy Prague at dusk, so it will enchant them with its mystery. The 5 km adidas Women’s race is perhaps more of an experience than a race. The Birell 10K race brings together runners of all performance levels and also lets them  experience something unique,” said Carlo Capalbo, president of the RunCzech organizing committee. The races return after a three-year break caused by the covid restrictions.

Those who want to enjoy a sport performance combined with a spectacular experience should take the time to register for one of the two Birell Prague Grand Prix races in the evening of September 3rd. The first one is exclusively only for women. The five-kilometer course of the adidas Women´s race will be an enjoyable running party that participants will certainly talk about for a long time to come  with their friends and colleagues. For example, Lucie Křížková, a Czech TV moderator and Miss Czech Republic 2003, will also be at the start.

The main charity of the race is a non-profit organization Loono, which, among other things, points to the importance of mental health education. It is possible to donate to the charity already when registering and paying the entry fee (more at
Starting at 7:30 pm the Birell 10K race is a ten-kilometer race boasting the World Athletics Label Road Race. The organizers have already confirmed the participation of top Kenyan elite athletes, together with top European and Czech athletes. “The Birell 10K race has a very fast course, making it popular with pro-athletes as well as All Runners. Moreover, it takes place in a beautiful setting. Everybody just loves Prague at night,” Carlo Capalbo invites all to participate.
