The Półmaraton Gdańsk is a road running event held annually since 2014 in the Baltic Sea port of Gdańsk in Poland.

It offers the following race options:

  • 200m, 500m, 1km kids' races (Amber Kids)
  • 5km (Bieg na Piątkę)
  • 10km (Nocna Dycha)
  • 21.1km half marathon (Półmaraton)

The event kicks off with the children's races on Saturday afternoon, followed by the 10k race in the evening. The 5k run and the half marathon take place on Sunday morning.

The start and the finish are at the AMBEREXPO Exhibition and Convention Centre which is located in the northern part of the city, between Gdańsk's historic centre and the beach.

Both the 5k and the 10k are out-and-back races whereas the half marathon features a loop course that takes the runners on main roads through industrial, residential and shopping areas, passing the port and vast housing estates as well as several urban green spaces.

The route is mainly flat and fast. It has been accurately measured and certified by PZLA, the Polish Athletic Association.

 

Covid-19 update:

In 2020, due to Covid-19 restrictions, the event will offer a half marathon only. The race will be run in three heats. The first will be started at 8.30am, the second at 11.45am and the third at 3pm. Only 250 runners will be permitted to run in each heat. Starting at the European Solidarity Centre (Polish: Europejskie Centrum Solidarności), participants will run two laps of a PZLA-certified course.
