We invite whole Polish Diaspora and its international friends, representatives of the world of European institutions, diplomats, residents of Belgium and all other countries in which you live and practice sport.
We welcome children, beginners, ambitious and professional runners. Street and mountain runners, medium-distance runners and ultras. We welcome experienced runners and debutants.
Because the partner of the project is the Polish Tourist Organization and Polish regions, the winners can count on valuable prizes, for instance: accommodation in the best Polish hotels or airline tickets to Poland!
Due to the fact that the competition takes place in Belgium, we want also to celebrate the following anniversaries this year:
- 100th anniversary of the establishment of Polish-Belgian diplomatic relations,
- 75th anniversary of the creation of the 1st Armored Division of general Stanisław Maczek, which liberated many cities and municipalities of Flanders and
- 15th anniversary of Poland's accession to the European Union.
The event is organised within the European Sports Week, which is an initiative of the European Commission to promote sport and physical activity throughout Europe. This week is to launch new activities and build on already existing, successful European, national, regional or local projects. This European-wide campaign #BeActive aims to encourage citizens to become proactive during the celebrations of the Week and throughout the year.
The athletic program will include 400 m races for the youngest, 10 km race and a series of events contributing to the picnic-like character of the event.
