One week after selling out its 20,000 entries for the mass race at the World Athletics Half Marathon Championships Gdynia 2020, the local organising committee has made an additional 5000 places available.
The event, which will take place on 29 March 2020, has already become the best-selling half marathon ever in Poland and now has a chance to become the biggest mass participation road running event in the country.
“We are delighted to see all the excitement around the World Athletics Half Marathon Championships Gdynia 2020,” said Marek Łucyk, Deputy Mayor of Gdynia. “Having consulted all the engaged parties and having made sure we will be able to accommodate a higher number of runners, we are pleased to announce that additional entries are now on sale. The city of Gdynia is looking forward to this great celebration of running on 29 March.”
The World Athletics Half Marathon Championships Gdynia 2020 is a unique opportunity to line up alongside the world’s best road runners, competing on the same day and on the same course with them. The race in Gdynia features a spectacular finish on the beach as well as the uniquely crafted finishers' medal with a drop of amber and a compass inside.
