Today the Organizing Committee of the RunCzech Running League has announced that the online registrations for RunCzech events 2015, including the 21st Volkswagen Prague Marathon, will be open on Wednesday, 3 September 2014.

Runners will be offered the same system of registration as last year – through creating their own profile – the so-called Runners ID, displaying all runner’s race registrations, transactions made, participation in RunCzech Running League races, times achieved as well as individual rankings.

With the rising popularity of urban running events and prestige of RunCzech Running League the races are usually sold out well in advance. “Last year the race capacity for April’s Sportisimo Prague Half Marathon was filled at the beginning of December, for the Volkswagen Prague Marathon right after Christmas. We expect the same will happen this year so we advise all those who are interested to participate in our races in 2015 to register now, ensuring their start number and taking advantage of the earlybird entry fee,” says Carlo Capalbo, the President of the Organizing Committee.

In addition to race registration runners will be offered to purchase an adidas running t-shirt, medal engraving service, accommodation during the race, flight tickets at a discounted price as well as a new service – insurance for a possible cancellation of race participation.

“Questions about the possibility to cancel race participation are coming from our runners quite often. I am therefore very pleased that we are able to meet the runners’ needs and offer this service thanks to our cooperation with ČSOB Insurance Company,” reveals Václav Skřivánek, the Race Director of RunCzech events. “This option will be offered among other services, so everybody interested can simply add it when registering online,” adds Skřivánek.

Sportisimo Prague Half Marathon – 28 March
