Experience great emotions and incredible energy, let your legs and imagination run wild! The High Five Race by New Balance is not just a race. Above all, it’s a great fun among people brought together by the same passion.

And if you are an experienced runner, you will spread your wings on the New Balance High Five Race – are you ready for a great race? On the last Sunday of March, you can compete for a personal best at 5km!

Second edition of the New Balance race

The Warsaw Half Marathon and the New Balance race were simultaneously held for the first time in 2022. Last year’s edition of the race gathered more than 2,000 participants and was one of the 10 largest running events in Warsaw and the third largest 5km race! It is sure that the next edition will gather even more runners.

Fast and comfortable route

The High Five Race by New Balance will take place on a spectacular and fast route, with a start on Konwiktorska Street near Warsaw’s New Town, and a finish line on the wide Wislostrada River and a running town in the Multimedia Fountain Park. The route will lead along Adama Mickiewicza Street all the way to Wilson Square, followed by a long run down on Zygmunt Krasinski Street that will allow to speed up or to catch a second breath – and finally a long straight line to the finish line will await the runners.

The New Balance High Five Race is an accompanying event to the 17th Warsaw Half Marathon. The main race at the half-marathon distance will set off at 11:00 a.m. from Konwiktorska Street, the High Five Race will start at 11:30 a.m. Runners from both distances will finish at Wybrzeze Gdanskie Street – near the Multimedia Fountain Park, where the Runner’s Town, which is the center of the sporting event, is built every year.

Title sponsor
