Warsaw Marathon

The Warsaw Marathon ( Maraton Warszawski Polish ) is a marathon, which takes place since 1979 in Warsaw, usually in September. It is the second largest marathon in Poland after the Poznan Marathon.

The route begins at the Sigismund's Column on the Palace Square and leads first over the king tract south to the Royal Baths Park and then returns via Marszałkowska road past the Kulturpalast back into the city center. After a loop at Piłsudski Square of the Old Town market is achieved. From there it goes on the market of Neustadt on a loop to the west of the city center, before it goes on the Danziger Bridge on the right bank of the Vistula. There one runs parallel to the river to the south and returns via the Świętokrzyski Bridge with panoramic views of the city center back to the left bank of the Vistula. The route now leads south to Wilanów, then north through the Royal Baths Park to the finish in a small park on the Vistula River below the Town. 2006, this course has been modified slightly due to construction on the Royal Route.

The circuit is almost completely flat, with the rise to Świętokrzyski Bridge as the only significant slope.
