Biegnij Warszawo is an annual 10k road race held in Poland's capital Warsaw (Polish: Warszawa).

It's a massive running event that attracts around 10,000 entrants.

The route begins and ends in the southern part of Śródmieście, Warsaw's central district.

Starting on the six-lane ulica Czerniakowska, at the eastern end of the very pretty Kanał Piaseczyński (Piaseczno Canal), the route takes the runners into the densely-populated Mokotów district in the southern part of Warsaw.

Back in Śródmieście, competitors run around the royal Łazienki Królewskie (Warsaw's largest public park) and into the commercial area in the city centre with its many high-rise buildings and skyscrapers.

After about 7.5 kilometres of running, participants get a glimpse of Poland's tallest building, the 237m-high Pałac Kultury i Nauki (Palace of Culture and Science; pictured), built by Soviet and Polish workers in the 1950s.

The finish line is at the Stadion Wojska Polskiego (Polish Army Stadium), the home stadium of the Legia Warszawa football club, located approximately 500 metres from the start area.

The route is a bit undulating. The difference between the lowest and the highest point on the course is approximately 25 metres.
