Another outstanding Polish marathon runner, Henryk Szost, finished second, with a time of 2:12:40. Both runners have thus qualified for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
Already on April 24, thousands of runners competing in ORLEN Warsaw Marathon will set off on the marathon route again. OSHEE 10-kilometre runners and marathon distance runners who have purchased the PREMIUM Starting Pack will receive starting packs with products provided by the sponsors of the event.
The fourth edition of ORLEN Warsaw Marathon will start on April 24th. Apart from the Olympic marathon the National Running Day will also include the 10 km run. To meet the expectations of runners, the course of the OSHEE 10 km Run has been completely changed and will now take them through one of Warsaw's most charming districts – Saska Kępa.
On the morning of Sunday, April 24th, during this year's edition of ORLEN Warsaw Marathon, runners will once again have a chance to beat their records.
