It is basically a two-lap course through the central parts of Stockholm. The surroundings vary from the woods of the Royal park "Djurgården" to the streets of a big city. The course passes buildings such as the Royal Palace, the City Hall, the Royal Opera and the Houses of Parliament. The course is one of the most scenic in the world. Much of the race is run along beautiful waterways.
When passing the "Västerbron" bridge, the runners will enjoy a fantastic view over a city with buildings ranging in age from the medieval times to the present day. The difference in altitude between the highest and the lowest point of the course is 29 meters.
Start just outside the Olympic Stadium and finish inside the beautiful arena. The first lap is 16.6 kilometres, the second lap 25.6 kilometres.


The race will finish in the world famous stadium built for the 1912 Olympic Games.
The Olympic Stadium has been the site of numerous memorable athletic performances, with no less than 83 officially recognised world records in track and field. There is no other arena anywhere in the world that comes close to that number.
The 1912 Olympic Stadium is truly a classic venue for athletics.
