Set new goals that really make a difference!
Run Helsingborg Half Marathon for Erikshjälpen and help to give more girls in East Africa the opportunity to go to school.
Erikshjälpen is a children’s rights organization that is fighting for children living in poverty and vulnerability to have a better life – both now and in the future. Work is ongoing in 17 countries, including Sweden, together with some 70 local partner organizations and focusing on children’s right to education, health, safety, protection and leisure.
As a charity runner, you are involved in helping more girls in Kenya get the opportunity to attend school. Education reduces child marriage, girls dare to stand up for themselves and dare to dream of a future – in a society where they are taken seriously.
You can run as a charity runner during the Helsingborg Half Marathon at an increased fee of SEK 405. We at Helsingborg Marathon will add an additional SEK 100 for each charity runner.

Course information Helsingborg Marathon
Since 2014 we’ve had a dream about a half marathon. With one ambition – that the course will take the runners through the city district Söder. The start of the race is the same as the marathon and the relay outside of Dunkers Kulturhus. The course includes 2 unique kilometers for the half marathon before connecting to the marathon course at Kärnan. The runners and the audience get to experience historical Gustav Adolfs Square, medieval castle Kärnan, Pålsjö forest and Sofiero. After a finish along the ocean the runners get to celebrate their achievement facing the beautiful Öresund before they continue to the event area which contains activities for family, friends and supporters. The course has about 170 meters in altitude difference with a hill up to Kärnan after 3 kilometers and a long descent towards the ocean after 18 kilometers. The half marathon has a varying surface but mostly asphalt.
The idea of a Half Marathon has been a dream far away. But not anymore, in 2018 the Helsingborg Half Marathon had its premiere.
