The marathon in Poznań, a dynamic city of more than half a million people in western Poland, is one of Poland's top running events.
Almost 5700 runners finished the race last year. The fastest finishers were David Tarus Kiptui of Kenya (2:13:08) and Maryna Damantsevich of Belarus (2:36:02).
In 2014, the race will feature a new improved single-loop course that will be AIMS/IAAF-certified and suitable for personal records.
The start and the finish will be, like before, at the Poznań International Fair, about 2km west of the historic city centre.
One of the highlights of the new course will be running through the Stadion Miejski, a 43,000-seat football stadium which was used as a venue for the EURO 2012 finals.
