After a few years of hard work on it, the marathon course is close to reach its perfection. Changing it just a little compared to last year course, we made it more comfortable for runners which hopefully results in personal bests.
What are the changes?
The first one is at the fifth kilometre (at Grunwaldzka Street, close to Bułgarska Street cross road). There is a U turn close Cmentarna Street. The second change is half way through the course and it might help runners gain a few seconds extra and free Rataje area from traffic. There is no more Kurlandzka Street which means there is no 400 meters uphill run in this area. The small challenge up the hill stays at the 35th kilometre, but once the runners are done with it, there will be a nice surprise awaiting them. There are no Marcelińska, Wałbrzyska and Ptasia Street to conquer which means there are less turns to take along the course. The last long street (Grunwaldzka Street) leads contestants right to the finish line at the Poznań International Fair.
