Great atmosphere, perfect organization. (about: 2003)|
M. T. from Warsaw, Poland (12/15/04)
4-5 previous marathons
| 1 Warsaw Marathon
The kind of race I love to be in: not too many runners (ca. 2,500), lots of activities happening before during and after the race and, first of all, perfect organization. Importantly, the race runs across the very heart of the city, crossing bridges, weaving through the old town square and getting you the flavor of the place. Warsaw-dwellers may not be the biggest crowd supporting you but those who did come watch were of great quality. As organizers top the race with children's contest for the most supportive school in Poland you get some 80(!) schools along the course cheering you on, offering water, iso, fruit, etc. This makes accidental passers-by stop and join them. Just a thrilling experience.
