The Beh oslobodenia Chtelnice takes place annually in late April in the village of Chtelnica which sits at the foot of the densely-wooded Malé Karpaty (Little Carpathians) in the western part of Slovakia.

Held for the first time in 1974, it's a long-standing running event that attracts approximately 200 runners of all ages.

Five race distances are available for children, from the 80-metres for preschoolers to the 1.2-kilometre run for 15-year-olds.

The 10.3km race is open to all runners aged 16 years or over.

The route is hilly, challenging and very scenic as it takes the runners on mixed terrain into the hills and around a reservoir in the forest. The difference between the lowest and the highest point on the course is about 70 metres.
