Tergat is wowed by visit to Bydgoszcz

The feedback given by IAAF Ambassador Paul Tergat on his first ever visit to Poland exceeded the expectations of the organisers of the 2013 IAAF World Cross Country Championships. After his four-day stay in Poland where Tergat visited the three biggest cities of the region – Włocławek, Toruń and Bydgoszcz, host city of the 40th edition of the IAAF World Cross Country Championships on 24 March 2013 – there seems to be more running enthusiasts in the regions of Kujawy and Pomorze. Tergat, the former World record holder in the 10,000m, Half Marathon and Marathon, signed autographs and posed for photographs with the many people he met, always smiling and happy to share the experiences of his long career.
