18th ‘Road Race Jaworzno’ 2013
Participants in the Bieg Uliczny Jaworzno will let off a lot of steam during this 15km road running race, which is held annually in early August in southern Poland. The race starts at 4pm (when it may be scorching hot), and the course is far from flat.
Starting and finishing at the ‘Hala Widowiskowo-Sportowa’ sports arena in Jaworzno, a city of about 100,000 people in the Upper Silesian Industrial Region, the race follows a very undulating out-and-back course through the northern parts of the city.
Although the race takes place within the city limits of Jaworzno, a large part of the route runs through open countryside and woods between the city centre and the district of Szczakowa, where Poland's first coal mine was opened in 1767.
In 2012, the race had over 650 participants, among them a large number of elite runners. The fastest finishers were Maksim Pankratov of Belarus (47:19) and Tatiana Kozubowa of Ukraine (55:55). The time limit to complete the course is two hours.
