35. Maraton Warszawski 2013
Warsaw (Poland), Sunday 29 September 2013
The Maraton Warszawski is one of Central Europe's fastest growing running events. A record number of almost 6800 runners completed last year's 42.2-kilometre marathon race through Poland's capital city. The entry limit is 8000 runners.
The new course, introduced in 2012, is a single loop that begins at the new National Stadium (pictured), a magnificent 58,500-seat arena on the River Vistula. The finish line is inside the stadium.
Most of the route is on wide roads and boulevards, with very few twists and turns.
Competitors run along the ‘Royal Route’ with its many grand palaces and buildings, around the Old Town, along the River Vistula, through residential areas, and through the beautiful Łazienki Park.
The time limit to complete the course is 6 hours 30 minutes.
