City course through 7 districts of Stockholm
We are pleased to present, for the first time, ASICS Stockholm Marathon’s new 2018 course. Stockholm was one of the first real city marathons and we are still keeping the unique city feeling the focus of the race.
RUNNERS FROM 100 COUNTRIES
The race will finish in the beautiful stadium built for the 1912 Olympic Games. The Olympic Stadium has been the site of numerous memorable athletic performances, with no less than 83 world records in track and field. There is no other arena anywhere in the world that comes close to that number. The 1912 Stockholm Olympic Stadium is truly a classic venue for athletics.
With almost 7,000 international runners from more than 100 countries, the ASICS Stockholm Marathon is also a multicultural festival.
51 female pioneers ran the first Stockholm Marathon in 1979. In 2015 a total of 5,694 women registered for the race.
We welcome you to the most popular event in one of the world’s most beautiful capitals!
