About Marathon

The Old Route but new emotions. This year's marathon was only slightly different from the one in 2009. Participants had a chance to run by the central streets of Warsaw, on the two banks of the Vistula River and two bridges, passing the most famous places and landmarks Warsaw has to offer. All the runners had ability to refresh at 15 refreshment points throughout the route.

Main prize

This year, the runners did not only compete for the best time. The main prize in 32nd Warsaw Marathon was a brand new Volvo S-60. The first man runner was Tola Bane (Ethiopia) with time 2:13:10. Women had chance also. Best women runners started the marathon 19 minutes and 30 seconds earlier than male runner. It is the time difference in the records between women and man, for the marathon route. It was unusual rivalry, which have not been seen in Poland yet.

The main partner of Warsaw Marathon was the City of Warsaw.
