The route

Both the start and the finish are at the Luotsipiha in Vallisaari. The route is 10km that consists of two loops in Vallisaari and Kuninkaansaari. There are no big hills but the route is undulating and takes a bit more time than perfectly flat route. The route will be the same as in 2017. The route will be clearly marked and in selected spots there will be staff to guide you. The roads and paths are not closed for the race so please pay attention to others sharing the same routes. There are no aid stations on the route but there will be drinks and some snacks for recovery at the finish.
