Everytime we read the comments after the race or the runners' stories, you nearly always mention the goose bumps on the start. The moment when you hear the heart beat, the gun shot and the music starts to play. Full of awaiting, emotions are beyond description. Tears in the eyes, butterflies in the stomach. That is why we decided to put this experience on your medals and dedicated our 2019 medals to The Moldau poem by famous Czech composer Bedrich Smetana. Finisher medals of the RunCzech Running League 2019 have different parts of the poem.

The Moldau (the German name, which is universally used) is the most popular of the movements and is frequently performed. It depicts the river Moldau, which begins as a two small springs in the Bohemian woods. These springs join and become a mighty river, flowing through the Czech countryside and into Prague. Each stage of the journey is depicted by Smetana with a musical motive that paints a vivid picture of the scene.
