The 2022 Warsaw Half Marathon will be officially called the Warsaw Peace Half Marathon. This name will be displayed on the race bibs and in other media. Road races are more than merely sport competitions. They also carry important social messages.
Right now we are living the moment when thousands of people should carry such a message down the streets of Warsaw. The message is: peace is one of the key values of mankind. And so is the right to live in peace. The Warsaw Marathon was originally called the Peace Marathon. Just a few days ago we all of the sudden realized what “peace” really is.
We are also going to carry out more specific actions.
A virtual Race of Unity with Ukraine will take place. On Monday we open the registration panel and all entry fees money will go to our partner charity helping people suffering from war in Ukraine. The Race of Unity will continue until March 27. You can run this race virtually but also wear the Race of Unity race bibs during the Peace Half Marathon or New Balance High Five Race.
Citizens of Ukraine! If being a part of the Warsaw Peace Half Marathon or the New Balance High Five Race can in any way help you in the hard time – you are welcome to join the races free of charge. A dedicated registration link is available on our website.
We will keep you informed on further actions.
