WPNA 103.1 FM is thrilled to organize for the second time 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. 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’s bib has a food coupon included. Adult runners can also use a beer coupon.  Custom Age Awards: Overall Male & Overall Female; 19 and under/20-29/30-39/40-49/50-59/60-69/70+


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!
