Stockholm Tunnel Run Citybanan

January 25, 2017 • 1 min read

On the 25th of March 2017, a running race will take place in Stockholm for the first and last time ever – Stockholm Tunnel Run Citybanan. 

Citybanan is a new 6-kilometre-long commuter train tunnel under central Stockholm. It will have two new stations: Stockholm City and Stockholm Odenplan, and will open in 2017. Before the inauguration, the city of Stockholm and its owners let runners try it out in a huge race. 40 000 runners will run through the asphalted service tunnel that runs parallel to the new train tunnel, filled with both steep climbs and long descents.

The start will be by Karolinska, and when the runners reach the goal line, they’ll be at Medborgarplatsen in Stockholm. There are still spots left at the one-of-a-kind race, taking place only one night. Are you up for the challenge? Book your ticket and read more about the race on the organizer’s website.
