The Memoriál Petra Minárecha is a medzinárodný cestný beh na 10 km, an international 10k road race in Slovakia.
It is held in memory of Peter Minárech, an avid runner and co-founder of the race, which was called Trebatická desiatka (Trebatice 10k race) until 2006 when Peter died at the age of 51. All in all, this is the 21st edition of the event.
The race takes place in Trebatice, a village of about 1,350 people, situated in the wide Váh valley in the western part of Slovakia, approximately seven kilometres from the spa town of Piešťany.
Participants in the 10k race run three and a half laps of a 2.8km-long course through the village. The start and the finish are 1.6km apart.
Last year, Ondrej Kubo (35 minutes 31 seconds) and Lucia Janečková (37 minutes 59 seconds) led a field of 102 runners across the finish line.
The entry fees are just €2 and the registration process is very easy. You just need to turn up and register on the day of the event.
