This is a different running event, where you and your friends can run the same day choosing four distances. You can run 5.5 km around one lake, or the neighbouring lake at 10.5 km. Or four lakes, that makes it 21 km. All six lakes is a full marathon. You will run on both trails and small forest roads. Compared to most trail races our race is easy, compared to a most road race it is slightly more challenging. We expect about 800 runners in total, about 200 for the marathon. Registration for 2024 is open. Register before December 1 to avoid higher prices.
Run marathon in Sweden – forests and lakes
The location of the event, Fjällnora, is an isthmus between two of the lakes. Here you will find the most popular beach around Uppsala. So you can choose any distance – 5, 10, 21 or 42 km – and celebrate your finish with a well deserved swim in the lake.
Please note that this is a race for everybody, there are no prize money nor special service for elite runners.
Registration is open.
It is more fun to run around something, and doing one lap. And what is more nice than running around a lake, and finish with a jump right in the blue? The lakes east of Uppsala make up for the magic combination of 5, 10, 21 and 42 kilometers.
One of our founders tried a six lake run last winter. The GPS stated 42,2 km. Not more, nor less than a full marathon! He had earlier noted that the distances around four lakes completed a half marathon. The too neighbouring lakes are just over a 10 km run and a 5 km run. At the center of the courses there the best beach in the area, with café, parking etc.
6 lakes – the short version
Register here. Start and finish is on the same place, Fjällnora, 15 km east of Uppsala, with four separate starts on Saturday:
