Held yearly on a Saturday afternoon in September, this ženský beh (women's run) in Slovakia's capital Bratislava offers two races, 4km and 10km long.

The start and the finish are at the modern Eurovea business and retail centre, which is situated on the left bank of the River Danube, a 10-minute walk from Bratislava's beautiful historic centre.

The 4km route runs through the Old Town, across the impressive Most SNP (pictured below), through the Sad Janka Kráľa park, and then across the Starý most (Old Bridge) back to the Eurovea centre.

Participants in the 10km race run across two more massive Danube bridges, so they cross the river four times.

Both routes are very scenic. From the bridges, there are great panoramic views of the city centre!

Last year, many runners produced fine finishing times, despite the high temperatures which reached around 30°C in the afternoon.

Ľuboslava Dobócziová won the 4k race in a time of 16 minutes flat, leading an international crowd of 801 ladies across the line. Jana Úradníková (41 minutes 25 seconds) was the fastest of 354 finishers in the 10k race.

This year, the event will be held two weeks later than last year, and temperatures are expected to be moderate and runner-friendly.
