Finlandia Marathon is a sports event for everyone, held in Jyväskylä on 19th September 2020. The course will follow the flat and fast ‘Rantaraitti’, a lakeside route voted Finland’s most beautiful. Lutakonaukio and Jyväskylä Pavilion will serve as competition centre.
The events are Marathon Relay (8 x 5 km), Finlandia Walk (5 km), Quarter marathon (10,5 km), Full Marathon (42.2 km) and Half Marathon (21.1 km).



Saturday 19th September


Finlandia Walk
Finland Walk is an exercise event with a low entry barrier intended for all who are interested in physical exercise and walking. Warm-up and the recovery bag distributed to all finishers is the same as for the marathon runners except that there is no timing in the Finlandia Walk. (A large clock is provided at the finish for those who want to know their time.) The Finlandia Walk offers an excellent introduction to the spirit of a major sports event together with co-workers or friends. Those entering on their own are also sure to find like-minded company.

Start Saturday 19th September at 10.30

Quarter Marathon
One 10,5 km lap around the Rantaraitti. Fast and flat route is perfect for beginners.

Start Saturday 19th September at 11.30

Marathon Relay
Marathon Relay is a sociable running event for workplace communities, associations, informal groups, etc. The Marathon Relay is run in 5-kilometre stints. A team consists of 4–8 runners, male, female or mixed. The team determines how many stints each runner completes.

Start Saturday 19th September at 12.30

The flat and beautiful Rantaraitti lakefront route is ideal for those taking part in their first full marathon. A fast route with few sharp turns, it offers an opportunity to improve your record if you have run a full marathon previously. The start times and common route of the full and half marathons ensure that there will be no lack of company and pacemakers along the route.

Start Saturday 19th September at 12.30

Half Marathon
While a half marathon is tough enough as an objective, it is nothing unattainable for those who engage in regular exercise. A warm-up and start with 2,000 participants will put you in the mood of a major event.
