Guided running trainings are a part of a certain insurance package on active healthcare. Nine meeting locations are mostly city parks, sport areas (open playgrounds, roller-skating ring, sport halls and stadiums, open air fitness devices and exercise paths, etc.), the line of runs are mostly within the inner urban ring. Activity is led by a certificated sport instructor. It is free of charge for the insured clients and runs once per week from March to November. Besides running with famous athletes, activity includes the analysis of the run technique, a test of run equipment, lectures and conversation with nutritionist and physiotherapist.
