How it all began

In 2005, Miroslav Kundrata, then director of the Partnership Foundation, and Carlo Capalbo, director of the Prague International Marathon (now RunCzech), began working on the concept of "tree runners". Marathon runners and other runners who help nature.

Since then, RunCzech has been involved in supporting a number of other voluntary activities, but cooperation with the Partnership Foundation remains the longest and most stable.

From the beginning we managed to:

  • Plant 3,465 trees and shrubs,
  • thanks to the support of more than 7,000 runners,
  • at more than 60 places throughout the Czech Republic.

If we put all these trees in a row with 10 meter spacing, it would create a symbolic alley 34.6 kilometers long. Each of these trees serves runners, cyclists, hikers and all of us.
