A few words from Rafał Kryjak, the runner who won the 1000-PLN-worth voucher for LOT flights in the lottery:
“I am not a professional runner but I decided to try my luck in the 1st Institute of Aviation Run. I never expected so many people would gather! I could see amazing diversity among runners – different ages, all skill levels from total beginners to professionals, pet lovers running with their dogs and parents running with infants in strollers. All in all, it was a very enjoyable time. Surprisingly, I won the top prize in the lottery but I believe all participants could feel like winners that day. I will be definitely here next year.”
