Marathon Relay

Finlandia Five

Finland Five is an event for all. Warm-up and the recovery bag distributed to all finishers is the same as for the marathon runners. The Finlandia Five 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 Friday 13h September 6 p.m.

Valon Kymppi

The flat and beautiful Rantaraitti lakefront route.

Start Friday 13th September  8 p.m.



The flat and beautiful Rantaraitti lakefront route is ideal for those taking part in their first full marathon. A fast route with only 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 14th September at 12.00


Half Marathon

When 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.

Start Saturday 14th September  3.15 p.m.
