Ellas hjältar – Become Frans hero!

Now you can become a hero for a child who is having a hard time. We are super proud of our collaboration with the foundation Ellas hjältar (Ellas heroes). Ellas hjältar’s vision is to give children an easier everyday life with the aids they need, but also to give children good memories that take them through tough times.

Together with you, our runners and ambassadors, we will now make sure to realize their dreams. When you register for Helsingborg Marathon you have the opportunity to make a donation to our project for Frans who needs a Racerunner so he can be able to move freely and play with his friends.

Course information Helsingborg Marathon

The course of Helsingborg Marathon was born out of the idea of showing as much as possible of the beautiful city of Helsingborg. The city center is small but filled with fantastic views and spots. The course begins at Sundstorget outside of Dunkers Kulturhus in the heart of Helsingborg. The road leads the runners down a flat 7 kilometer  section to Råå Småbåtshamn which carries on to Ättekulla nature reserve through Raus Södra. When you reach this spot it won’t take long before you will experience two wonderful parks, Ramlösa Brunnspark and Jordbodalen. Further on the runners will reach the stunning Fredriksdal Museums and Gardens, a farm in the middle of the city, and then on the same kilometer experience a big contrast when passing Olympia, the residential area from the turn of the last century. During the second half of the course you get to see the medieval castle Kärnan, Pålsjö forest and Laröd. The course then continues down the long hill Tinkarpsbacken before you reach the fantastic finish along the ocean. The last 3300 meters on Helsingborg Marathon has permanent markers every 100 meters. 33 lines with countdown to the finish line on Gröningen. The home stretch along the ocean offers flag banners above the runners heads for the last 200 meters and when they pass the finish line they get to celebrate their achievement facing the beautiful Öresund. The course is unique in every way with varying environment and highlights on a 42 195 meter long lap. Those who run always say – I will do this again!
