Everyone is the winner has been the motto of the Bratislava Marathon since 2014. It highlights the spirit of the event – every participant, regardless of whether they are children, marathon runner or still active seniors, is the winner because what counts is the willingness to push boundaries and step outside one’s comfort zone.

ČSOB Bratislava Marathon is one of the best-known running events in Slovakia. The 17th edition of the event is scheduled for the first weekend in April and the organizers once again promise a wonderful sporting experience for runners and spectators alike. The level of competition has increased year after year and is reflected in the interest of runners from a large number of countries to come to Bratislava.
