About Marathon


..

The first annual Krumlov Watermen Marathon took place already back in 2003. The organizers were inspired by a watermen marathon taking place in the French canyon of Ardéche, transforming this event to Southern Bohemia to the Vltava River. Every year, hundreds of enthusiastic watermen as well as top sportsmen gather to attend the Marathon. The Krumlov Marathon is the largest in the Czech Republic by the attendees' count and by the number of competition categories.
