The 2. PZU Gdansk Marathon takes place in 2016. We want it to be a high class, professional sports event and to become one of the most important running events in Poland for good!
Within few next years, we are planning to place the event at the forefront of the biggest and the most significant running events in Poland, both concerning its quality as well as the attendance of the participants. Organising an even of such a scale requires lots of effort, but also certain support of Sponsors – companies that support healthy lifestyle of Poles, encourage whole families to physical activities and want to provide positive impressions and emotions. The perspective of cooperation with PZU acts motivating and encourages to hard work. What’s interesting, the route is planned along the well known and most characteristic places on the map of Gdansk as the Long Market by the Neptune Fountain, the Monument to the fallen Shipyard Workers, the Stadion Energa-stadium, the AMBEREXPO Exhibition and Convention Centre, European Solidarity Centre or Ronald Reagan’s Park. The asset of the city of Gdansk is its geographical location and great transport connections with other cities in Poland. Convenient access and rich offer of accommodation enable the participation in the event. There are few hundreds of volunteers at the service of the participants and the observers.
The registration for the 1. PZU Gdansk Marathon started on 15.01.2015 with a great momentum. Within the first 24 hours over 1000 of participants got registered. After one month the list of participants contained 2000 contestants. Due to the big interest and multiple queries if it would still be possible to sign up, the organisers decided to increase the limit of participants with 500 people. Every contestant received a very attractive starting pack. Apart from impressive commemorative medals that hung round their necks topping their success, everyone received also a high quality thermoactive T-shirt thanks to cooperation with the brand CRAFT. The shirt reflective insets increasing safety of the participants training after dark. The pack was also supplemented with a shoes sack and a ceramic mug. Additionally, contestants could take part in the campaign “Get activated in marathon” – a free of charge preparation course under supervision of coaches and instructors. The trainings took place twice a week and were led by titled active marathon runner, winner of the Champion of Poland-title – Radoslaw Dudycz.
Gdansk is an extraordinary city – other places can only resemble it. The unique location and over 1000 years of history is what makes Gdansk special, distinctive, with a grounded position on the map of Europe. At the same time, it is a city that still holds many secrets. It’s a city of freedom that changes every day.
Not that long ago, Gdansk was in the centre of events that changed the course of the European history. In August 1980, the strike in Gdansk Shipyard led by Lech Walesa and the rise of the great social movement Solidarnosc dominated the imagination of millions of people. Those were the events that gave a boost to many liberation movements around the world and enabled believing that the impossible is yet possible. Today’s Gdansk is a modern European metropolis with a knowledge-based economy. It’s also a rapidly expanding centre of culture, science and sports, an attractive touristic destination and world’s capital city of amber. Not without a reason, Gdansk – known for its breath-taking Stadion Energa-stadium and Ergo Arena-stadium – was one of the cities hosting the European Football Championship UEFA EURO 2012™, hosted Volleyball Men’s Championships – European in 2013 and World in 2014 and in 2016 was one of the city-hosts of the European Men’s Handball Championship. And we are very proud of that!
