The first Półmaraton Henrykowski is to be held in August 2012 on a rural course in the Lower Silesia region in south-western Poland.

The route will be one loop around the village of Henryków which has been named after Duke Henry I the Bearded who in the year 1222 authorized the founding of an enormous Cistercian monastery complex in the village, the Klasztor Henryków.

The start of the race will be at the train station, approximately two kilometres from the finish at the monastery, where the Polish Priests' Half Marathon Championships (and several regional championships) will be decided.
