Race Across Prague – Over Three Weirs is a traditional Prague paddlers race with a history dating back to 1939. The race course is about 6.5 kilometres, starting at Císařská meadow and finishing at Štvanice island. It offers view at Vyšehrad, the National Theatre, Charles Bridge, Prague Castle.

On their way, the participating crews have to master three obstacles: Štítkovský weir near Jirásek Bridge, Staroměstký weir at Charles Bridge and finally Helmovský weir in Holešovice.

Racers can select whether they want to compete in a canoe, kayak or paddle a raft.
