You can pick up your race packet at the Race Office located in the Palace of Culture and Science (Plac Defilad 1, the entrance is from Marszałkowska Street).

If you want someone to collect the race packet on your behalf – print out and sign the race card (the card will be downloadable from the athlete’s profile – after registering in the YOUR RUN tab in the second half of September) and attach a photocopy of your ID card. Based on these two documents, your race packet will be available for another person to pick up.

4. Getting to the start

The number of parking spaces in the area of the start is very limited. We recommend arriving by public transportation, e.g. to Dworzec Gdański subway station. Remember that on the day of the marathon you can travel by public transport in ticket zone I for free, based on your race bib.
Before arriving at the start, check temporary changes in traffic organization in the specially prepared TRAFFIC INFORMATOR.

5. Start Organization

The start of the run will be at 9:00 a.m. The starting line will be closed approximately 10 minutes after the starter’s shot.

Participants in manual wheelchairs will start from the first line at 8:57 am.

Line up in the designated zone according to the designation on your race bib. Assignment to a specific zone is made according to your declared time, stated in the entry form.
Please note that those who pay the entry fee after August 31, 2022, are not guaranteed location to the time zone based on the declared result.

6. Water and refreshments stations

Refreshment points with mineral water MAGNESIA will be placed at intervals of about 2.5 kilometers starting from the 5th kilometer. Additionally, OSHEE isotonic drinks and YELLOW bananas will be located at every other point starting from the 10th kilometer. You can find the details on the route map attached below and on the PICTURE.
Remember that each water and refreshment point is about 100m. You do not need to run up to the first table – water is available at both the initial and further tables. You can avoid “jamming” the zone by running up to the further tables.


IMPORTANT: there will be “drop zones” set up behind each water and refreshment point on the same side of the route where you can drop your cup. We strongly urge you to throw your trash into the marked zones. This will keep things tidiness and avoid throwing cups under the feet of runners running behind you and polluting the roadside.
There will be toilets near each of the water and refreshment points.
Toilets for people in manual wheelchairs will be located at water and refreshment point nr 3 (10km), nr 7 (20km), nr 1 (30km), nr 15 (40km).

7. Deposits

In your race package you will receive a bag that allows you to deposit your belongings before the run. To deposit your belongings, you must stick a sticker with your race bib on the bag, which you will find in your packet.

Marathon participants’ deposits will be accepted on Sanguszki Street between 7:00 and 9:00 a.m. You will find the number of the car to which you can give your deposit on your race bib.

You will need your race bib to collect your deposit behind the finish zone. The deposit can be collected until 4:00 p.m. from the same cars that will go to Wisłostrada and will be waiting for you just behind the finish zone. The organizer is not responsible for valuables left in the deposit.

After 4:00 p.m. the collection of deposits will be held from the Info point in the Town.

8. Behind the finish line

At the finish line you will receive: a medal, Magnesia mineral water, OSHEE isotonic drink and Yellow banana.

Moreover, you can enjoy a recovery meal based on your race bib.

After the run, participants will also have the opportunity to use the changing rooms, massage and showers. Showers will be available at the Polonia Center building, 6 Konwiktorska Street.

9. Pacemakers

Pacemakers will help you to achieve your dream time at the finish line of the 44th Warsaw Marathon. They will run on times: 3:00, 3:10, 3:15, 3:20, 3:25, 3:30, 3:35, 3:40, 3:45, 3:50, 3:55, 4:00, 4:10, 4:15, 4:20, 4:30, 4:40, 4:50, 5:00

10. Timing

Time measurement is carried out by a chip placed in your race bib.

General classification is based on actual times (net – counted from crossing the starting line). The exception is the first 200 people crossing the finish line – they are classified on the basis of official times (gross – from the starter’s shot), with the proviso that if there are not at least 8 men and 8 women among the first 200 people at the finish line, the number of 200 people will increase to include them.

All additional classifications (age, branch) are based on actual times (net – counted from crossing the starting line).
