23rd New Year's Eve Run across Bratislava's Bridges 2011
Bratislava (Slovakia), Saturday 31 December 2011
Nový most ("New Bridge") is the fourth of five bridges on the course.
Runners in Slovakia's capital Bratislava celebrate New Year's Eve with a 10K point-to-point race along the River Danube. The route crosses five impressive bridges.
The start is at the University of Economics in the eastern part of Bratislava. The finish is at the Lafranconi Bridge in the western part of the city, close to the border with Austria.
