In looking for a marathon to profile I came across the Poznan Marathon which takes place in Poland. You likely have not heard of this one before, I had not until I went searching for a new marathon to profile.
If you want to know why I chose this one tonight well there is a simple reason. All finishers are entered in a draw to win a car. That’s right, you could win a car just for finishing this marathon. I’m pretty sure a car giveaway is unique, at least I have not come across any other marathons so far that have give away a car to a lucky finisher.
You might think that if they are giving away a car it is probably a small cheap car like a Lada or a Ford Fiesta. In reality, if this year is any indication, they do give away decent cars as well. This year’s prize is a Volvo V60.
Now if the idea of winning a Volvo is not enough to interest in you in this one I should probably provide you with more detail on the race itself. Poznan is a city in Western Poland. It is also one of the country’s oldest cities.
The marathon involves two loops of a course that passes by many of the places of interest in Poznan. You can find out more by reading some race reviews here.
What do you think about this one? Would the possibility of winning a car tempt you to travel to Poznan?
