Fyll på kaffetermosen och bred ett par mackor inför din långa färd längs Stockholms fina stråk längs med vattnet. Ta med dig en förälder eller partner och gå snabbt eller sakta.
Ta med dina vänner på en solig joggingtur utan prestationskrav bortom det tydliga målet att bemästra STHLM FIVE. Kom i toppform på köpet.
Vinn över dig själv och andra när du pressar dig runt Stockholms underbara miljöer snabbt som attans. Bara vinden kan stoppa dig. Blir det guld, silver eller brons?
Every week we release a new route. You can choose which pace suits you. Top up the coffee thermos and spread a couple of sandwiches for the trip. Take your friends for a no-performance jog. Win over yourself and others as you make your way around Helsinki.
If you want to bring friends and colleagues, we also have a team competition. At least 3 and no more than 8 people form teams. Enter the team name when you register (under the Club field). Complete all the rounds together (i.e. you start and finish in a group, leave no one behind). Join us in the competition for exciting team prizes.
