The main aim of the contest is to achieve as many kilometres as possible by running or cycling. The project also aims to motivate academic community (students and employees) to be physically active during summer months.

Participation in the contest is easy and flexible. Everyone can take part from anywhere at anytime. The event starts in mid-June and will be held until 31st of August 2020. The aim is to run (walk) or cycle as many kilometres as possible in the shortest time. There are pre-established sport clubs for each faculty and activity in mobile app called STRAVA. Interim results will be also updated once a week on charts at www.kolobehfakult.cz.

The contest is supported by deans of following faculties of Charles University: Second Faculty of Medicine, Third Faculty of Medicine, Faculty of Medicine in Plzeň, Faculty of Medicine in Hradec Králové, Faculty of Pharmacy in Hradec Králové. The winning clubs will be awarded the challenge cups.
