About Gdynia

Gdynia – a city pulsing with sport.

Organization of IRONMAN 70.3 means yet another historic success for Gdynia – joining the club of the most important triathlon places
in the world. Being the host of this prestigious event will certainly strengthen the city’s position as the capital of Polish triathlon.
Beautiful landscapes, active residents, openness to new ideas – all this makes Gdynia a wonderful location for major sporting events. The IRONMAN 70.3 is just a perfect example of the above. It is already for the third time that Gdynia has been pointed as the best place to organize the most popular triathlon event in Poland.
The triathlon course leads through the most beautiful places in the city, such as the Central Beach, Gdynia Marina and Kosciuszki Square. Each year, the competitors covering the killing IRONMAN 70.3 distance are strongly supported by crowds of loyal fans. It will be no different in 2017! For many years, Gdynia has consistently focused on sports, what has been reflected in a wide range of activities organized not only for physical activity amateurs, but for sport supporters as well.
Last years wear marked in the local history as the most exciting sporting events, such as: the Red Bull Air Race, Herbalife Triathlon Gdynia, Volvo Gdynia Sailing Days, Coca Cola Cup Polish League of American Football Superfinal and Players Tour Championship snooker tournament. Yet the organization of spectacular events is not everything. Gdynia puts great emphasis on promoting physical activity among its residents as well. Dozens of sports fields, playgrounds and outdoor gyms are built in Gdynia each year.
Moreover, various free of charge sports classes within the “Gdynia on the Move” project are held on a regular basis. All these contribute to the fact that more and more Gdynia residents become involved in sport. What proves the increasing interest in the active lifestyle is the number of people taking part in running events – the four city races organized in Gdynia lately were attended by several thousand people! Changes taking place in Gdynia are easy to notice. Runners or Nordic Walkers have already become an integral part of the most beautiful landscapes in Gdynia – we very much hope to see triathletes joining them in the nearest future.
