The Bratislavský cross is a cross country running event held annually in October in Bratislava, capital of Slovakia.

It offers races for runners of all ages:

  • 500m: children 3-10 years old
  • 1km: children 11-14 years old
  • 3km: juniors 15-18 years old
  • 3km: women 19 years and over
  • 6.5km: women 19 years and over
  • 6.5km: men 19 years and over

The event features a time trial format. Runners start off in pairs, at 15-second intervals.

The start and the finish are on the lawns of the Letné kúpalisko Rosnička, a summer swimming pool complex situated in the borough of Dúbravka, approximately six and a half kilometres north-west of the city centre.

Both the 3km and the 6.5km routes take the runners up and down the densely-wooded Sitina hill, one of the foothills of the Malé Karpaty (Little Carpathians) mountain range. The 3km route includes about 90m of ascent, the 6.5km route 180m.
