Every first weekend of September, the historical Old Town is the scene of one of the major races in the Czech capital. With the 21st edition of the Birell Prague Grand Prix, 2016 is no different.
When night falls, 9,000 runners, pros or not, invade the folkloric streets lighted up by the street lamps. Two races are programmed for this nighttime event: Adidas Women's Race, which is a 5 kilometres race, and the Birell Race, which is twice as long. Runners cross the finish line on the Old Town Square under the thunderous applause of enthusiast spectators in a very joyful atmosphere. After the winners are honoured on the podium, a concert of live music will keep the evening going.
