The Warsaw Marathon is a celebration not only for runners but also for their families, supporters, and all residents of Warsaw. Together with our partners and invited institutions, we are preparing a variety of attractions in the Runner’s Village for everyone.

The village will be open on Saturday and Sunday. You’ll find a gastro and entertainment zone for both young and old, a stage with a rich schedule of events, a resting area, and opportunities to win prizes in contests. We warmly encourage you to visit the Runner’s Village – whether you’re participating in the races or cheering on the sidelines.

More details coming soon.

  • Nutrition points along the route of the 46th Nationale-Nederlanden Warsaw Marathon, equipped with water, will be placed at intervals of approximately 2.5 kilometers starting from the 5th kilometer. Additionally, every other point starting from the 10th kilometer will offer isotonic drinks and bananas.

  • Nutrition points always begin and end with water tables. Detailed information about the products available at each point can be found on the route maps.ATTENTION! Alongside each nutrition point, on the same side of the route, “drop zones” will be set up where you can dispose of your cup. Please make sure to dispose of trash in the designated area. This will help maintain cleanliness and prevent throwing cups in front of other runners and littering the roadside.


  • Near each of the nutrition points along the marathon route, there will be portable toilets available.
  • Toilets for individuals using wheelchairs with direct drive will be located along the route of the 46th Nationale-Nederlanden Warsaw Marathon after selected nutrition points.


In the race packet, you will receive a bag for depositing items before the race. To deposit your belongings, you need to stick a sticker with your start number onto the bag, which you will find in your pack. To retrieve your deposit, you will need your start number.

The deposits will be located on vehicles. The number of the vehicle where you can deposit and later retrieve your belongings will be indicated on your start number. The vehicles with deposits will be located in the Runner’s Village area – under the Palace of Culture and Science from Marszałkowska Street. The exact location of the deposits will be shown on the Runner’s Village map.

The organizer is not responsible for valuable items left in the deposit.
