It was a wonderful event. I thoroughly enjoyed the race over the beautiful course although it was much hillier than expected. Drink and food stations were perfect. Thank you and I miss it already.

ASICS Stockholm Marathon

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 kilometers, the second lap 25.6 kilometers.
