Bratislava (Slovakia), 5-6 April 2014
The Bratislava Marathon running weekend kicks off with the children's races on Saturday morning, followed by the 4km and 10km races on Saturday afternoon. The marathon, half marathon and half marathon relay are held on Sunday morning.
The new course, which was introduced last year, is AIMS-certified, traffic-free, and mostly flat and fast. The full marathon consists of two equal laps.
Participants run along the River Danube, through the city centre, and out and back to the eastern city limits, passing many historic and modern buildings en route.
All races start and finish at the Eurovea Galleria shopping mall on the River Danube — a fine place to relax in one of the many riverside cafés after the run.
The time limit to complete the course is five hours for the marathon, three hours for the half marathon, and ninety minutes for the 10km run.
