COURSES AND COURSE MARKING

You can read more about the courses as well as view course maps if clicking in to the page for your race in the main menu here at our website.

Courses are very well marked with white/red ribbons every 10-50 metres depending on terrain. Most sharp turns are marked with A4 signs with red arrows. At some intersections and sharp turns there are also lanes with red/white tape on both sides (and you should run in to these lanes). In open fields the course is marked with red flags on 0.5 m high metal poles. If you've been running for more than 100 metres without seeing any markers, you have missed a turn/sign and should turn back to look for markers/signs.

All courses have a mix of technical trails, hills, tracks, walking paths, gravel roads and some shorter sections with paved roads. We recommend runners to run use a trail shoe although "normal" running shoes will work fine as well if conditions are dry.


AID STATIONS & FINISHER MEAL

Along our courses there are a number of aid stations. Above, in the details for your race, you can find the number of aid stations on your course and how far in to the race you will arrive at them. Most stations have both snacks and drinks while a few only serve drinks (Kvarnvreten and Harpaviljongen). 

Running 45 or 80 km?

Our two longest races are semi self supported races. This means that you will need to bring water and nutrition in your pack from the start. Please note that in our 80 km race, it's 25 km to the first aid station and another 20+ km to the next one, so make sure you start the race with plenty of water and snacks and stock up at the aid stations.

N.B. There are no cups at aid stations. You need to bring your own beaker/cup/flask if you want to drink, which we think you want to ;) We don't use disposable cups due to environmental reasons.

Served at all aid stations

 

Served on most stations

  • Cola
  • Lemonade
  • Crisps
  • Candy
  • Cinnamon buns
  • Bananas
  • Water melon
  • Orange
  • Raisins
  • Pickled cucumber
  • Salt
  • Coffee (only on 80 km course at km 25 aid station))

 

When you've reached the finish line you can enjoy a vegetarian meal cooked by the EcoTrail chefs and a nonalcoholic Erdinger beer. You can also by ice cream, coffee and sandwhiches in our trail running village at the finish line.

 

 


NEW! ERDINGER NON-ALCOHOLIC FINAL SPRINT

After finishing, all runners get a non-alcoholic beer from Erdinger. A new addition to EcoTrail Stockholm 2024 is the Erdinger Non-alcoholic Final Sprint. The final sprint is approx. 500 metres long, from the Erdinger Portal to the finish line and is part of all our races except for kid's races. The fastest man and woman (regardless of the race/distance they take part in) on the 500 m final sprint are awarded with a dinner at restaurant Nya Carnegiebryggeriet (value SEK 1500).

 


CHIP TIMING & RESULTS

Your timing chip is attached to your bib, so please don't fold your bib. Intermediate times will be registered at every aid station along the course.

Your result in the 33, 45 and 80 km races is elapsed time from the gun up until you cross the finish line. For the 8 km race and 16 km there are 2/3 start groups. The top 3 podium positions men/women are awarded to first three runners to cross the finish line, from the gun for the FIRST start group. For place 4 and up, your result is your net time, i.e. elapsed time from you cross the start line until you cross the finish line. So, if you're fast you CAN officially finish 4th even if you start in group 2 or 3, but you won't be on the podium even if you have a slightly faster time on the course than a top 3 runner in group 1. 

Live results are available here from when the race starts.
