The Špačinský trojuholník ("Špačince Triangle") 10k race has been held every year since 1978 on an undulating, triangle-shaped course through agricultural land on the wide Danubian Lowland in western Slovakia.

Starting in the village of Špačince, the first 4.7 kilometres are run on the main road towards the city of Trnava. Then, the route turns left towards Malženice, and left again to the finish line at the football pitch in Špačince. The course is not closed to traffic.

Over the last 37 years, the event has attracted runners from many different countries. In 2014, the fastest finishers were Michal Puškár (35:47) and Ľubomíra Maníková (38:15).
