Course Description

0-1.8 km. The race starts on asphalt for just a few hundred metres, across the walkbridge and into the forest on the east side of the motorway; a short segment of narrow trail then onto the wide track back westwards to the tunnel under the motorway

1.8-4.2 km. Scenic running from the tunnel under the highway on hiking trails in open settings across the iconic Sandsjöbacka drumlin. Some uphill but really enjoyable single track running.

4.2-8.1 km. Easy segment of Sandsjöbackaleden from the Grönabur fields to Mellsjö an onwards on dual track dirt roads and easy single track paths. A slightly more muddy section close to the crossing of Spårhagavägen, where the second aid station is located. Segment ends after Kimmersbo with a sharp right onto a forest path.

8.1-12.0 km. Deep forest part of Sandsjöbackaleden and the green hiking trail to Årekärr. This is a technical segment with much up and down and a narrow, winding forest path with roots and rocks.

12.0-14.6 km. Sandsjöbackaleden from the idyllic valley at Årekärr to Oxsjön, still in deep forest, lots of muddy passages here and some uphill, tough running although not extremely technical.

14.6-18.9 km. From the southern shore of Oxsjön, Sandsjöbackaleden ends with wider graveled paths. Some uphill and steep downhill but otherwise easy running. The third aid station is at the end of the hiking trail.

18.9-22.7 km. End of hiking trail. Mixed surfaces, with some paths, some gravel road and some asphalt, first downhill then flat across Fässbergsdalen in western Mölndal. Easy running.

22.7-26.3 km. A few steep climbs with a very short asphalt segment and then a long and really technical passage through the narrow canyon Mölndalsravinen. Ending at the top of Änggårdsbergen with a nice view of Göteborg.

26.3-28.6 km. Downhill with easy running on wide and firm paths through the Botanical garden.

28.6-30.3 km. Asphalt through Slottskogen and then a short trail passage featuring the final twist over the finishing hill and into the stadium.
