Only runners born in 2006 or earlier are allowed to start, and all runners participate at their own risk.

The Ramboll Stockholm Halvmarathon is a World Athletics Road Race Label event and is therefore also a race that counts towards the world ranking.

Due to the urban environment and passages with curbs and similar, we do not recommend participation with a wheelchair.

For the safety of other participants, strollers, baby joggers, bicycles, joelettes, roller skates, roller skis, inlines, hand bikes, and skateboards are strictly prohibited during the race.

RUNNING SHOES

Elite runners competing in shoes that do not meet World Athletics’ requirements for ”general availability” risk being removed from the results list retrospectively. World Athletics’ list of approved road shoes can be found HERE.

COURSE

The course measures 21,098 meters – a half marathon. The course has been officially measured by a federation course measurer.

ENERGY AND FLUIDS ALONG THE COURSE

The course has seven hydration stations and four energy stations.

At stations 1 and 5, only water is served; at other stations, water and the sports drink Enervit G Sport are served.

The energy stations serve Redbull energy drink, Chiquita bananas, Protein bars or gel, and Enervit GT tablets.

MAXIMUM TIME AND CUT-OFF TIME

The Police Authority has granted permission for a maximum time of 2 hours 45 minutes. This means that if you start in the last start group, you must finish by 6:50 PM.

We have two cut-off times:
At 12 km, there is a checkpoint that all runners must pass by 5:35 PM to continue the race. At 17 km, there is a second checkpoint that all runners must pass by 6:15 PM to continue the race. For runners who do not meet the time limit, we offer transport to the vicinity of the finish area.
