Velvet Run 2023

Date: 18 November 2023 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM, Venue: Embassy of the Czech Republic in Stockholm, Villagatan 21, Stockholm

“Velvet Run” took place on Saturday, November 18, 2023 at 14:00. For the fifth time, we commemorated an important anniversary with a symbolic joint run in the center of Stockholm - the Velvet Revolution in Czechoslovakia in 1989 - a historic moment that brought us political freedom, the fall of communism and the establishment of democracy in Czechoslovakia.

As in previous years, we had prepared three variants of routes with different lengths and difficulties for you:

  • The Pros - for runners who attack records and run really fast (7 km route).
  • The Rookies - for runners who like to observe the surroundings, but are not afraid to increase the pace (4.5 km route).
  • The Walkers - for non-runners who like to enjoy a pleasant walk (about 2.5 km route).


There was a dressing room and hot drinks available for you on site.

And a small gift was waiting for you after finishing!


The event was organized by the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Stockholm in cooperation with the Czech Center Stockholm.
