ASICS STOCKHOLM MARATHON
5 SEPTEMBER 2020 – CANCELLED
Update June 10th: We in the sports organisations Spårvägens FK and Hässelby SK, together referred to as Marathongruppen, have today been forced to make the decision to cancel our planned events in August until mid September. This decision includes ASICS Stockholm Marathon (September 5).
DURING THE RACE
The race starts in two groups, at 12:00 and 12:10, from Lidingövägen, outside the Clock Tower of Stockholm Olympic Stadium.
In accordance with our permit from the police authorities, the maximum running time is 6.5 hours. We are also introducing paceholder groups, helping runners to finish the marathon through a customised runwalk plan. The runwalk paceholder groups will start in the last start corral, J. If you want to join them, don’t mention any earlier results when you register and you’ll automatically end up in the last start corral.
The course is 42,195 metres long, and has been measured in accordance with Swedish Athletics Federation and IAAF rules. The measurement was carried out on 25 April 2017 by Hugh Jones, AIMS course measurer from Great Britain and Mikael Hill from Stockholm. Each kilometre will be clearly indicated with a sign.
