DIRECTIONS – PUBLIC TRANSPORT
The underground and bus are the best and most environmentally friendly ways to get to ASICS Stockholm Marathon Expo and to the start at the Stadium. The best way to get to the Expo is by underground. Take Red Line 13 towards Ropsten, get off at Gärdet, and take the exit towards Värtavägen. Then follow the signs to Kungliga Tennishallen. To get to the start, take Red Line 14 towards Mörby Centrum and get off at Stadion. It is 400m from there.
Stockholm public transport, SL, has information and travel plans in English on its website www.sl.se or mobil.sl.se.
We recommend that you come to the event changed and ready to run. You can leave your bag at the clothing deposit in the stands at the Stadium. Your number bib has a tear-off tag with your start number. Attach that to your bag when you hand it in and you can show your number bib when you come to pick it up.
Just like the Marathon, ASICS Stockholm High Five starts on Lidingövägen outside the Stadium clock tower. Assembly before the start is inside the Stadium and the start pens open about 10 minutes before the first start which is at 17:30. The preliminary plan is that there will be a further two starts with 3 minutes between. If you are going to run fast then it is best to join the first start group.
The course will give you a taste of the wonderful marathon experience. And just like the Marathon ASICS Stockholm High Five has the same impressive start on Lidingövägen and finish in the classic Stockholm Olympic Stadium. We will also take you along and through ASICS Stockholm Marathons event area with the Royal Tennis Hall as the magnificent, new home for the Expo. The five kilometre course is mainly on asphalt with some gravel paths.
FINISH & AFTER RUN
After the finish line you will first get your medal and some snacks. Then it’s time for the After Run and our famous pasta party. Zeta will serve pasta, tasty bread and a cooling bottle of sparkling Pellegrino mineral water. Your number bib has another tag, marked Zeta Pastaparty, which lets you in to the After Run. We will have music entertainment and artists on stage.
