What is Sokol Run of the Republic
We are an annual celebration of the founding of Czechoslovakia and we celebrate on the 28th of October by movement! The first edition of the new tradition was held in 2019 and was an instant success. Today, we've had 4 years of celebrating the Republic and we continue to grow, with nearly 7,000 of us in 61 communities including 8 abroad. Join us and celebrate the foundation of the Republic, cheers to you on the 28th of October!
How can I join
History inspires us
In autumn of 1919, on the occasion of the first anniversary of Czechoslovakia, Sokol prepared an unprecedented sporting event, which allowed the participation of the largest number of Sokol members, the so-called rozestavný běh on 28th of October. One hundred years later a new project called Sokol Run of the Republic inspired by the previous tradition was founded and with it the celebration of 28 October 1918 in the form of a series of runs organized throughout the country.
