Sądecka Dycha Street Run

For the ninth time, more than 300 run­ners par­ti­ci­pa­ting in the Sądecka Dycha street run cove­red the 10 kilo­me­tre distance star­ting from the Mar­ket Squ­are in Stary Sącz with the finish line on the Nowy Sącz Mar­ket Square.

This year’s win­ner in the women’s cate­gory was Kata­rzyna Albrycht who cove­red the distance in 00:36:38, Mau­reen Kip­ko­ech Kiprono (Indi­vi­duel) came second (00:37:51), fol­lo­wed by Ewa Kuchar­ska, repre­senting CA Aktywni Club (her result was 00:38:08.)

Benard Kitur (Indi­vi­duel) came second losing 3 seconds to the win­ner. Nel­son Kip­ko­gei Che­ru­tich (Benedek-Team) was third (his score: 00:32:42.)

An unu­su­ally warm and sunny weather attrac­ted  a crowd of fans who could watch the race live on a pro­jec­tor screen. Sądecka Dycha is not only a run­ning event– star­ting from 9 am when the race office was ope­ned, the audience could listen to a con­cert by No Bro­thers band and chil­dren could par­ti­ci­pate in quiz­zes devo­ted to the history of Nowy Sącz, NEWAG and a history of run­ning sport events.

The race was fol­lo­wed by an offi­cial awards cere­mony and a draw of attrac­tive pri­zes among  the run­ners. The awards were offi­cially han­ded out by Zbi­gniew Konie­czek, CEO of NEWAG  S.A., Józef Micha­lik, Vice Pre­si­dent of NEWAG S.A., Łukasz Wysow­ski, Paweł Szcze­pa­nik and Marian Ryżak, NEWAG’s employee, the run coor­di­na­tor and main organizer.

Apart from NEWAG S.A., which was the main spon­sor, the event was spon­so­red by Med­com Sp. z o.o., RFWW RAWAG Sp. z o.o, Gra­met,  P.H VOLPEX, IGUANA-GASTRO-POLSKA, GRAND Sp. z o.o. and ENTE sp. z o.o. The orga­ni­sers express their gra­ti­tude to all Spon­sors for their sup­port in orga­ni­zing this event hoping for their col­la­bo­ra­tion during the next edi­tion of the Race.

We would like to thank all the run­ners and fans for par­ti­ci­pa­ting in the 9th edi­tion of Sądecka Dycha Street Run and enco­urage them to join us in a 10th anni­ver­sary event next year.
