WPNA 103.1 FM is thrilled to organize the Polish Independence Run/Walk (Bieg Niepodległości)!

Polish Independence 10K/5K Run/Walk is a race commemorating the anniversary of Poland’s resurgence as an independent country on November 11th, 1918. This USATF and CARA-certified, chip-timed course runs along the beautiful Lake Michigan at Montrose Harbor. After the race treat yourself to Polish food and beer. Polish American rapper, Funky Polak will also perform with his band.

Biegi Niepodległości organizowane są w całej Polsce od 30 lat, a teraz, po niezapomnianym, ubiegłorocznym Biegu Stulecia, po raz drugi w Chicago. Bieg Niepodległości to okazja do uczczenia na sportowo rocznicy odzyskania przez Polskę niepodległości. To nie tylko wydarzenie sportowe, ale też szansa na pokazanie Chicago siły Polonii i podzielenia się naszą radością z tego, że mamy wolną Polskę – nawet jeśli mieszkamy poza jej granicami. Spotkajmy się, by pobiec dla Niepodległej!

There are two distances to choose: Polish Independence 10K Run and Polish Independence 5K Run or Walk. All include tech shirt, finisher’s medal and cinch backpack. Each runner gets a food coupon included. Adult runners can also use a beer coupon.
