This year, the organizers have prepared 21 routes, including several for cyclists and wheelchair users. At the end of the march, a traditional souvenir, a plastic shoe, was waiting for all participants.
Last year, about 24,500 tourists went to Prčice. Even this year, Czech Railways strengthened connections due to the march, yet some trains were full. According to the participants of the march, queues were also formed at the refreshment stalls.
On Saturday, pedestrians chose from various variants of routes, ranging in length from 23 to 70 kilometers. The longest started in Prague at the Háje metro station. The first participant, who set off for her, reached the finish line ten minutes after noon. The same pedestrian was the fastest last year. The first woman arrived at the finish line around 3 p.m.
The greatest interest is in routes around 30 kilometers, ie the shortest ones. The special route from Votic is for children, measuring 23 kilometers. It was attended by over 4,000 people. The route for wheelchair users, which starts in Miličín, is 13 kilometers long and, according to the organizers, the interest in it is gradually growing.
According to the organizers, the traditional Prague-Prčice march is the most popular domestic event of its kind with the longest unbroken tradition. It was first held in 1966, when five hundred tourists tried to cover a distance of 100,000 Czech elbows, which is about 60 kilometers.
