The yearly competition in Podebrady (National Championships and EA Race Walking Permit Meeting) is one of the most important races throughout the year in Europe and thee world. Held each year around April it became a very traditional race which started from Prague to Podebrady almost a century ago, as you can see on the video.
The circuit is very popular between the racewalkers which has an even floor, smooth turns, totally flat which is a one km loop around a park in other words perfect and what I heard the best track so far.
I should not forget to say that there's a money price for the winners, How much I am not sure about but it is probably a good amount.
