Six districts, two bridges and two banks of the Vistula River joined together in one, unique course. It is fresh, surprising and picturesque. And most of all – the course really connects two banks of the Vistula. The river will accompany us for most of the route. Get to know the course of 37th PZU Warsaw Marathon.

The new route of the 37th PZU Warsaw Marathon shows what is most interesting in the capital city of Poland. It runs through such parts of Warsaw as Praga Północ and Saska Kępa that are rarely included in city races. Runners will also run through the gates of the Warsaw Citadel, that on a daily basis is a closed military area. The route leads also through places known from previous editions of the event like Łazienki Park and legendary tunnel. What is more, the course of this year’s edition is also very “green”: runners will run through five parks: Skaryszewski Park, Agrykola Park, Łazienki Park, Kępa Potocka Park and Praski Park. Now that’s a real new one!
– Whether the route of the marathon is fast, slow, difficult or easy is for most of the runners of secondary importance. Marathon is a marathon: it is always a challenge to run a specific distance, which in case of a marathon
is a great challenge itself – says Marek Tronina, the CEO of the Warsaw Marathon Foundation. – In this case, all the marathon runners for sure will appreciate the fact that they will be able to run through places that they have not been able to run through in any other race before. The Warsaw Marathon Foundation has set new standards for the routes
of the races in Warsaw for years. During previous editions of the Warsaw Marathon participants could for the first time start from the Poniatowski Bridge and run through such places as: Marszałkowska street, Łazienki Park,
nature reserve Natolin, district Ursynów, Puławska street. The new route sets new standards, it is the first course that connects two sides of Warsaw in such a spectacular way. Now that’s a real new course in Warsaw. See for yourself.
