If you want to see the countryside of Finland, then the Espoon Rantamarathon is a perfect marathon to train for! Held annually in September, it is a road race, but on backroads! Whether you are a newbie trying to complete a marathon for the first time or you are a seasoned marathoner looking to beat your best time, the Espoon Rantamarathon is a less competitive marathon where you can just go your own speed.
If trail running is your forte then the Vuokatti Trail Challenge is a perfect fit. Racers start at the old school in Teerivaara in Vuokatti and make their way to the finish line at the hotel Kuofatinhovi. The off-road terrain crosses hills and forests with a delight for all senses around every corner. The total height of the run is about 960 meters, so make sure to add in some mountain race training!
For the night owl, the Forssa Summer Night Marathon is a unique event that is something outside the ordinary 26.2 miles of a regular marathon. There are an estimated 600 participants who will sign up this year. So, make sure to reserve your spot!

It was my first marathon and I loved it! The route wasn't that difficult, mostly flat. The bits which were next to the see were really lovely! There were plenty of refreshment stations, where we were ...
Fairly easy for a first timer. Very scenic as well! :)
