The idea of creating a winter, sport event of great importance has been in plans few years before it was realized. Mr. Julian Gozdowski, the director of the Sport Department in the Govenor's office was inspired by the Swedish Vasaloppet, wanted Bieg Piastow skirace to become a great, mass skiing event. It is not sure who gave Bieg Piastow the name but it was invented during one of mr. Gozdowski's talks with journalists from the Wroclaw Television. The first Bieg Piastow Race took place on the 11th April of 1976. The main distance was planned for 20 km but in fact it was something like 15 km around the Cicha Rownia. 518 people took part in the first race but only 261 completed it. Stanislaw Michon  won the first Bieg Piastow Race.
