It is gratifying to WMRA to see the enthusiasm and friendliness shown during these Championships. I am sure I speak on behalf of you all when I congratulate past organisers for the magnificent way in which they have staged this annual event and to thank all involved in this years championships for all the hard work that is going into their organisation. We are visiting the Czech Republic for the first time for this competition, and the venue chosen, Dolni Morova, is a ski resort in winter and a walking venue in summer. I am sure you will enjoy traditional Czech hospitality in this small resort. Mountain running has a great tradition in Czech republic. They have organised the Mountain Running World Trophy, the European mountain running championships, and the current womens world champion, Anna Pichrtova, is Czech. The man behind this years event. Jan Simunek, owner of the Czech engineering firm Iscarex, is himself an enthusiastic Masters competitor finishing 58th in the M55 age group last year.

Danny Hughes - President WMRA

Dear sportsmen and sport fans, I am honored to welcome you in Pardubice region by the opening of the World Masters Mountain Running Championships and I am glad it is going to take place under my auspices. I am pleased to have such great numbers of you here to surmount the top of the mount Slamnik from which is a great view of the highest mountain of our region – Kralicky Sneznik. I was myself many times on that symbolic top of the Pardubice region as a tourist and I know how hard the terrain is and to what height you will have to climb. With respect to the pace in which you get to the top and also to your age, you have my admiration. There can be only three of you who get the medals. Nevertheless, I wish everybody reach his or her small victory on the race track. Then, I think, each of you will be happy. The surrounding lovely nature will definitely help with that. And would feel some day the urge to come back either as a runner or tourist, I will be happy as well.

Dear friends, we have successfully arranged 55 races during the last 17 years, including those with international attendance and the national championships in 2005. But to organize The World Masters Mountain Running Championships is something special. We have the beauties of nature, a promise of up to 1.500 brave runners, an experienced organizing team and also the patronage of the local government. Fans of sport, running and general exersizing, let me invite you to come in and see it for yourself. Even the race alone will be a unique event. There will be rich festivities and refreshments ready for you and lots of other adventure options. The region of Kraliky, Dolni Morava and Kralicky Sneznik is a very splendid place, still almost untouched by tourism. I m convinced the region can only benefit from The World Masters Championships.
