Helsingborg Marathon

The course of Helsingborg Marathon was born with an idea of showing as much as possible of the beautiful city of Helsingborg. The towns city area is small but is filled with blinding views and fantastic 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 road to Råå Småbåtshamn which carries on to Ättekulla nature preserve. 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 museum and garden, a farm in the middle of the city, and then on the same kilometer experience a big contrast when passing Helsingborg Arena and Olympia. During the second half of the course you get to see the medieval castle Kärnan, Pålsjö Skog and Sofiero. Then the course continues down the long hill Tinkarpsbacken before you get to a fantastic finish by the ocean. The last 3300 meters on Helsingborg Marathon has permanent markers every 100 meters. 33 lines with countdown to the finish – Gröningen. The finish 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 the achievement facing beautiful Öresund. The course is unique in every way with varying environment and highlights on a 42 195 meter long course. Those who run always say – i will do this again!

Atea Half Marathon

Since 2014 we’ve had a dream about a Half Marathon. The start of the race is the same as the Helsingborg 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 Torg, medieval castle Kärnan, Pålsjö Skog and Sofiero.
