About

Once you’ve travelled around Poland, you realise this: Warsaw is different. Rather than being centred on an old market square, the capital is spread across a broad area with diverse architecture: restored Gothic, communist concrete, modern glass and steel.This jumble is a sign of the city’s tumultuous past. Warsaw has suffered the worst history could throw at it, including virtual destruction at the end of World War II – and survived. As a result, it’s a fascinating collection of neighbourhoods and landmarks. Excellent museums interpret its complex story, from the joys of Chopin’s music to the tragedy of the Jewish ghetto,With that being said, the PZU Warsaw Marathon is the place to be!!The Warsaw Marathon is an annual marathon race, which takes place in the heart of Poland's capital, Warsaw. It's the oldest annual marathon in Poland. It has been held since September 30, 1979. In the first race, the length of the course was just 40.6 kilometres (25.2 mi), and not the normal, classic distance of 42.195 km (26.219 mi). Warsaw Marathon is organized by Fundacja Maraton Warszawski Non-governmental organization. From 2013 Powszechny Zakład Ubezpieczeń polish insurance company became a title sponsor and the name of the marathon was changed to PZU Warsaw Marathon.One of Europe's fastest growing marathons - from 300 to 7000 over a decade. Superb organization plus ultra fast course combined with thousands of spectators along the route. The course is ultra fast and ultra spectacular. Each of the six districts it crosses puts up its own cheering zones where tens of thousands gather to help you when the going gets tough. 25 meters of negative elevation make you feel like running down.
