The Ultimate Challenge
On 12th October, thousands of runners will take to the streets to compete in the biggest event on the Poznań sporting calendar. The 2014 Poznań Marathon is the 15th edition of the race.
Poznań first hosted a marathon in 2000 and in those days it was a relatively small affair with just a few hundred local runners. In contrast, last year’s event saw over 6000 competitors, including some of the finest marathon runners in the world. Kenyan David Kiptui Tarus was victorious in a time of 2’13’’.
It’s still not too late to put your name down for the ultimate sporting challenge. The event website provides all the necessary details for those wishing to join in: marathon.poznan.pl/en
The course starts and ends at the Poznań International Fair on Glogowska Stree and takes in many of the city’s famous landmarks, finishing at the Poznań International Fair on Glowgowska Street.
So whether you’re a serious athlete, a recreational jogger or just want to cheer the runners on and soak up the atmosphere, Poznań will be the place to be on Sunday 12th October.
