Trail 8 Km
WELCOME TO ECOTRAIL STOCKHOLM 8 KM!
Our 8 km race is truly a race for everyone! Challenge yourself and run as fast as you can from Kaknästornet to Galärparken on winding trails or take it easier and enjoy the beautiful course and surroundings. Have you never ran that far before? At the finish line at Stora Skuggan, you'll receive a beautiful medal as a token of your accomplishment followed by a tasty meal and finisher party together with thousands of other runners. This is the competetive version of the 8 km race for the runners who want an official finishing time. Do you prefer jogging or walking the course without timing and official results? Then you should instead sign up for our new version/category - 8 km Fun Run! It has the same beautiful course, but there's no rush and the field will keep an overall slower pace.
Our 8 km course is the most wild one, consisting mostly of small trails and tracks in the lush forests of Norra Djurgården. Even local runners are surprised by how many "new" and "unknown" wild trails and locations our 8 km course offers.
For the 2022 race we updated the course and the new course offers even more beautiful nature and single track trails compared to the course for the previous editions.
