With 5,278 finishers last year, the Národný beh Devín-Bratislava is by far Slovakia's biggest single road running race.

The route is 11.625km long and undulating, starting at Hrad Devín (pictured), a ruined castle that sits spectacularly on a steep rock high above the confluence of two rivers, the Morava and the Danube.

Situated on the border with Austria, Devin Castle is a truly impressive sight. It played a prominent role in the history of Slovakia, and it is regarded by many as a symbol of Slovak nationhood.

The finish line is in the city centre of Bratislava, on the left bank of the Danube.

Before the race, participants can use the free bus service from Bratislava to the start area at Devín Castle.

The event also offers a 2.6km run for young athletes and recreational runners.
