Our 45 km course gives you all the best of what Stockholm's got to offer when it comes to great trail running - archipelago, technical single track trails, country side, city, sights and several view points. The race starts at the amphiteater by Stora Skuggan at north Djurgården, part of the national states park founded in 1995. You start off by making your way on the trails in the oak forests along Värtans strand. By an overpass you enter Bergshamras lush streets leading up to Edsvikens south shore. When you enter the palace grounds at Ulriksdals the beautiful linden alleys reinforces the experience of the royal castle from the mid 17th century. You pass over the motor highway via a bridge before the woods and you have to take on the technical trails of Ursviks nature area. When you turn back towards north Djurgården you will need to pass the enriched Hagaparken. This is where our crown princess and family is living, at Haga slott.
You run around Brunnsviken before you run through the University campus and circle back tot he starts. Here it connects to the 16-kilometer trail which circle around Laduviken before you reach Fiskartorpet and the climb up the old ski-slope. Here frequent ski-jumping competitions were held during1920s and 30s. Close to 30000 in the audience was not uncommon. After a passage through the woods it opens up again before you pass Stockholms horse stadium where the competitions of the 1912 Stockholm Olympics were held. Onwards you pass the the passerar man development along Tessinparken on the upper parts of the på övre delarna av district of Östermalm before you enter the big open area of Ladugårdsgärdet, known to everyone as Gärdet. You are almost at the halfway mark and soon you will be able to drink and fill up on some energy as you reach the landmark Kaknästornet.
From there you soon enter a beautiful deciduous forest with narrow up-kept trails. When you have passed Hundudden you cross the bridge that runs over Djurgårdsbrunnskanalen. The trail follows the shore of Isbladskärret before it submerges into the lush deciduous forest which now mainly consists of majestic oak trees. At the well known and well-kept garden of Rosendal the trail merges into a park and walkway. You run passed the parameter of Skansen and Villa Gothem before you pass the tram and run towards Galärparken, next to the Vasamuseeum, where the royal ship from the 17th century is preserved for future generations. At the finish you are treated to an extraordinary view of the city center of Stockholm, framed by the beautiful Strömmen.
