10th Nysa Run – two records
The jubilee 10th edition of the Nyski Run was very fast and brought two records: of routes and attendance. 850 participants ran in Nysa for the first time in the history of the event.
This year’s edition of the Nyski Run was one of the fastest. The route record was broken by Monika Jackiewicz (MKL Szczecin, Lubawa), the current Polish marathon champion. The winner covered the 10 km route in 34 minutes and 14 seconds. Eight years ago, in 2015, Sylwia Ejdys-Tomaszewska ran 22 seconds longer. It is worth noting that in the current Nysa Run, the winning woman was eighth in the general classification. Artur Olejarz (MKL Szczecin, Zielona Góra) crossed the first finish line after 31 minutes and 16 seconds. It should be emphasized that this is the third best result in the history of the Nyski Run. Despite the fast pace in the men’s group, the phenomenal result set in 2012 was maintained. At that time, Arkadiusz Gardzielewski covered the route in 29 minutes and 57 seconds. He is still the only winner of the Nyski Run with a time of less than 30 minutes.
– The Nysa Run was reborn after the pandemic – says Jacek Makowski, co-organizer of the run. – The turnout has returned to the level when the event was developing very dynamically. Applications are coming in faster than in previous years. Potential participants are increasingly aware of the popularity of the run – Jacek Makowski concludes.
The 10th edition of the Nyski Run was record-breaking in terms of attendance. This year, over 850 runners took part in the run, which is the largest number in the history of the event. The record of success was basically also broken by the family run, the so-called “Family Mile”. There were so many volunteers that the starting numbers ran out.
The organizers of the event are the Interschool Student Sports Club “GIM 2” from Nysa, the “In Action” Foundation and the “NYSA IS RUNNING” group.
