Over 7 000 registered runners in Krynica. New participation record ahead!


The registration pace to the PZU Running Festival is quite fast. Over 7000 runners have registered to the Running Festival four months before the start of the event, what means over 2500 more runners than at the same time in 2013!

2300 run lovers in Krynica – the town where the famous Polish painter Nikifor was born– is only a small part of registrations to the most popular run within the Festival which is the 10k “Lifetime Ten” Run. What is worth underlining is that 50% of participants are women! Around 300 participants have already registered to the Women Run for 600 m. dedicated for women, especially for the beginners.

The 7 Valleys Run for 100k has been recently upgraded getting the status of the 1st Polish Championship in Mountain Ultramarathon. It is the second most popular run within the Festival, considering the number of participants. A group of 1132 runners, among them 87 ladies will fight for the medals and the 100 kilometer race run will lead through the most charming parts of the Beskid Sądecki region. Passionate rivalry is guaranteed!

Almost 800 participants declared to take part in the Royal Koral Marathon. Over 750 runners have registered to the Ultramarathon accompanying the 7 Valleys Run for 66k and to the Mountain Run for 36 k. Nearly 90 participants will face the challenge and take part in the second edition of the Iron Run – this year this run will be held on 8 different routes.

Among the new competitions of the Festival the most popular are: half-marathon (over 900 participants), Cross Night 5 km (nearly 700 participants) and Cross 15 km (450 registered participants).
