Sławek Szefs reports that one such event is the Centennial Run, which is expected to simultaneously gather at least 100,000 participants in 100 cities across the country on November 11 – Poland’s Independence Day.

Tomasz Majewski, a two-time shot put Olympic champion and vice-president of the Polish Track and Field Association (PZLA), said that in the case of Poland there is a strong connection between national independence and sports.

“It should be remembered that the forefathers of our independence were frequently the forefathers of Polish sports […]. Their memory also has to be honored," Majewski told Polish Radio.
