The Night Run in Bratislava is Slovakia's biggest 10k race.

It is held annually on a Saturday night in the autumn and attracts more than 4,000 entries. Registration may close early due to capacity, so don't wait too long to get your entry in.

Participants are given the option to sign up as an individual runner or as a relay team of two (ca. 5km+5km).

The start/finish area is at Eurovea, a business and retail complex situated on the left bank of the Danube, approximately one kilometre east of the historical centre.

The route is very scenic. It runs through the beautiful Staré Mesto (Old Town), through the 792m-long Bratislavský tunel (a tram tunnel under Bratislava Castle), along and across the Dunaj (Danube) and around Sad Janka Kráľa (Janko Kráľ Park), one of the oldest urban parks in Europe.
