POLISH INDEPENDENCE 10K/5K RUN/WALK 2020
[EVENT SOLD OUT]
Polish Independence 10K/5K Run/Walk (Bieg Niepodległości) is a race commemorating Poland’s resurgence as a sovereign country on November 11th, 1918. It has been organized annually for over 30 years in major Polish cities and twice in Chicago.
In 2020, the event organizer, WPNA 103.1 FM, was planning to once again hold the run on the beautiful Chicago lakefront at Montrose Harbor. The coronavirus pandemic forced us to abandon those plans – but we are organizing a virtual run instead!
This year, runners who register online simply choose their own starting line, whether it’s a treadmill or a neighborhood street. The participants run the race distance and are mailed a custom medal and a tech T-shirt.
