The Warsaw Run for 2012 has been and gone. This is not the Warsaw Marathon, as many people think, but it's over a distance of 10km (6 miles). Just like every year it was well represented, well-organised (although there was a little confusion from some stewards as to where the start line actually was) and ultimately a lot of fun. It was shown live on the internet via a Polish TV channel streaming it and you could see the remote controlled helicam buzzing overhead , taking some shots. There were over 10,000 participants and it was some kind of Polish record.
I got my personal best and I'm looking forward to 2013. Here's the website for signing up and info https://www.biegnijwarszawo.pl/
Above is the video for the 2008 Human Race. It was a 10km run sponsored by Nike. The Human Race was a special event organised in a few cities around the world. This video, thank you to the organisers, really captures the spirit and atmosphere of the day.
In Warsaw, the annual event is often called the Warsaw Run. Everyone is welcome to participate and it is always well-organised. The times are uploaded to the internet so that after the race you can see how you did during the race. It is not expensive to enter and you get a race t-shirt included in the price. Join me for the next one!
