37th edition of the event was exceptional in many ways. Unique route linking two banks of the Vistula river, unique finish at the National Stadium for the last time, and above all, unique scale of the event – never before we had so many accompanying events during the marathon weekend.
We will keep you informed about our plans for next edition in 2016- 38th PZU Warsaw Marathon!
37th PZU Warsaw Marathon went down in history of running in Poland, mainly thanks to the first edition of charity action #BiegamDobrze. This unique formula actively engaged runners in fundraising for charity. In the first year of the action we managed to collect 180,000 zł. And we will not slow down…
A rich program of the marathon weekend and new initiatives guaranteed heated atmosphere and high interest of runners and fans in the event.
On 26th and 27th of September you could visit Sports&Fitness Expo and participate in seminars on running organized by Bieganie magazine as well as in BlogFest – workshops for bloggers.
Sports emotions and rivalry began on Saturday, September 27th on the pitch of the National Stadium where nearly 2,000 children struggled, depending on the age category, on distances from 100 to 1,500 meters for the title of Young Hero of the National Stadium. For many of them it was the first contact with sports competition and we hope that this was also the first step on their way to the finish line of Warsaw Marathon.
All Saturday in Skaryszewski Park was held a vegan race Run Vegan!- a partner event of 37th PZU Warsaw Marathon. It was an all-day picnic with Vegan Market and Vegan Pasta-Party promoting running, conscious lifestyle and the idea of vegan nutrition.
Participants had also an opportunity to take part in a marathon relay in teams consisting of three runners. It was a great chance for people who have it in mind to run the marathon distance. In this way, many people closed their running season together with friends, family or colleagues.
Half an hour after the start of the marathon, we could hear another starter signal- for participants of fourth High Five Race, and it was almost 4,000 of them! The fastest was Łukasz Parszczyński with time 0:14:41.
37th PZU Warsaw Marathon wouldn’t be that successful if it wasn’t for the great passion of thousands of runners and hard work of committed volunteers.
Thank you! See you in a year!
