The Špačinský trojuholník ("Špačince Triangle") is a 10k road race held annually in July on an undulating triangle-shaped course through an agricultural area in the Trnava Region in Slovakia.
Held every year since 1978, and always on the same course, it's a long-standing and prestigious running event which has welcomed runners from many different countries.
The start and the finish are in the village of Špačince.
The first 4.6 kilometres are run on the main road towards the city of Trnava. The route is marshalled but it's not closed to traffic.
Once you have turned left towards Malženice there's much less car traffic on the course, and the last 2.2 kilometres are very quiet.
This video gives you an idea of what to expect in Špačince.
