It is a great honour and pleasure to inform you that this year's edition of Race Around Poland and the first WUCA Ultra-Cycling World Championships will again be held under the honorary patronage of Mayor of Ursynów – Mr Robert Kempa!
We are particularly pleased because we have the opportunity to welcome Mr Robert Kempa - the Mayor of Ursynów District of the City of Warsaw - in this role once again, as he has been with us since the first edition in 2021. We are delighted that Race Around Poland has become a permanent part of the landscape of events supported and co-organised by the Ursynów District. Thanks to this support, in addition to purely technical issues, participants in the race were able to listen to the pre-start briefing in the modern facilities of the Ursynów Cultural Centre or the District Office from the very beginning, as well as were able to honorary start from the stage located right next to these buildings. Representatives of the District Council also took part in welcoming participants at the finish line, and in awarding medals for completing the race. This year again we are planning that the pre-start briefing will be held in cooperation with the district - details to follow soon. Thank you for riding with us again!
This year, the participants in the race, including the contenders for the title of Ultracycling World Champion, will start from the start of honour located in the Miasteczko Wilanów, near the District Office.
Ursynów and Wilanów have a population of over 200,000 and are the green lungs of the southern part of Warsaw. These well-connected districts have numerous green areas, including nature reserves, and a solid infrastructure for sports, including road cycling.
