6. Poznań Półmaraton 2013
Poznań (Poland), Sunday 7 April 2013
Over 4,400 runners took part in last year's half marathon in Poznań, a dynamic and prosperous city of about 550,000 people in western Poland.
Poznań is not only an important trade centre on the rail line between Berlin and Warsaw, the city is also well known for its vibrant arts and culture scene.
The half marathon begins and ends at the eastern end of Lake Malta, a popular recreational area situated about four kilometres east of the historic quarter.
The route is a rather flat and fast loop through residential and green areas in the eastern and southern parts of the city.
In 2012, the Poznań Half Marathon winners were Solomon Kiptoo of Kenya (1:01:59) and his compatriot Lucy Macharia (1:10:25).
The time limit to complete the race is three hours.
