Quick Start

Stockholm Tunnel Inline Marathon

Join the Stockholm Tunnel Race on October 17, 2004 and skate, walk, or run your way through a unique underground experience. This is turning out to be a very popular event. More than 1500 tickets were sold in the first hour and 7000 tickets were sold after only 4 days!

About the Tunnel
The South Link is Sweden’s largest road tunnel project and connects two of Sweden’s most heavily trafficked routes; Essingeleden to the west and Värmdöleden to the east. Around 60 000 vehicles will be able to pass through the tunnels every 24 hours, reducing the impact on the surrounding environment and Stockholm at large.

Grand Opening Race
The South Link will be opened for traffic on Sunday 24 October 2004, but you can experience the tunnels first-hand before we let the vehicles take over! As part of the inauguration programme, Hammarby IF Athletics will be organising the Tunnel Race on 17 October 2004. The race takes you through all of the South Link tunnels, and those of you who imagine them to be dark and inhospitable are in for a surprise!

  • INLINE SKATING - 42 KM and 12 KM
  • RUNNING - 12 KM

    The Route
    The start and finish lines will be at the Stockholm Globe Arenas and the participants will be treated to a unique underground experience. About 90 percent of the race course will run through the South Link tunnels. And although the finishing line at the Globe promises to be a magnificent experience, a number of other exciting events are being planned along the route.

    Who Can Participate?
    The Tunnel Race is open to everyone, whether you can manage 10 km in 40 minutes, would like to speed through the tunnels on inlines or stroll along the route.
