• Back on Track - Athletics Competitions in Czech Republic Set for 1 June

Article source: Watch Athletics

On Monday, 1 June, the "Back on Track" project organized by Czech Athletics will bring together many professional athletes and kids in 173 stadiums across the Czech Republic.

Barbora Spotakova the two-time Olympic javelin champion and many pro athletes will join hundreds of kids to participate in numerous track and field events across the country.

"Our motivation was for the athletes to be able to race as soon as possible. They're here for it, and we're here to let them. However, we wanted athletes of all categories, and not just elite representatives, to race. So we thought, why not do it in bulk. So I suggested that we race together in a hundred stadiums. That was the original idea. The interest was huge and at the beginning of this week, 173 places have already been registered where the race will take place on June 1,"  the chairman of the Czech Athletic Association Libor Varhaník said.

Track and field fans from around the World will be able to watch many events on CT Sports. Where and how to watch events see more info here.

In mid-March, the Czech government put in place social distancing rules to slow the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. On Monday many restrictions will be lifted and replaced with new regulations which will allow up to 300 people to participate in a single sporting event.
