24th Half Marathon Pila 2014
Piła (Poland), Sunday 7 September 2014
The Półmaraton Piła is one of Poland's most prestigious road running races.
Almost 2500 runners finished the half marathon last year, led home by Joshua Maingi Munywoki of Kenya (1:03:05) and Olga Ochal of Poland (1:14:18).
Starting and finishing in the town centre, the route consists of three different laps, approximately 3km, 5km, and 13km long. The course is gently undulating.
Piła is a largely modern town of about 75,000 people in north-western Poland. There may not be many sights of historic interest in Piła but it's a very pleasant and welcoming town with lots of green spaces and parks, and many forests, lakes and rivers nearby.
