On Tuesday, 15 June 2021, our first Hradec Králové Alumni Run of alumni and employees of the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Pharmacy of Charles University took place.

The program was arranged in cooperation with the Department of Physical Education, so the participants were offered a warm-up route including a runners´ alphabet, a main circuit through beautiful Hradec Králové footpaths along the Orlice River, as well as a trot and a final stretch. All this under the expert guidance of KTV lecturers, who we owe a big thank you.

The main circuit was 2.5 km long and included a small race for the prizes of the Alumni FM HK and KTV. Some people extended their route, some ran the finish line twice, but all with smiles and grace. Congratulations to the winners and thank you to all the participants who made sure that our first Alumni run was not only action-packed but also relaxed and fun.

The winners took home our Alumni FM HK tin cup, chocolate and a KTV certificate.

But that wasn’t all. We all had the opportunity to take part in an exclusive tour of the Botanical Garden of Medicinal Plants greenhouse directly with its manager, Mrs. Anezka Chlebkova. It was a truly beautiful, unusual experience and we all took home a lot of interesting, new information about local and foreign plants, tasty or toxic, eye-pleasing or strange.

All photos from the event can be found in the photo gallery.

Thank you for a great event and we look forward to the next one!
