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 year, there are two distances to choose: a 10K run or a 5K run or walk. All participants will receive an event t-shirt, a custom medal and there will be trophies for winners in different age and gender divisions. Post-race activities will include Polish food and drinks.

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!
