Since its very first edition in 1981, the Helsinki City Marathon has been the largest and most international marathon in Finland. The Helsinki Marathon offers runners a route overlooking the sea and parts through the city centre. The start is in the Olympic Stadium, next to the statue of one of the most famous runners of all time: Paavo Nurmi. After a relatively flat run, all participants of the entire marathon will finish in the Telia 5G Areena. You can also participate in the half marathon on the same day or run a combination of both runs.
