About 6 lakes – 6 sjoar

The name of the race “6 sjöar” – six lakes – is obvious: all distances encircles lakes, the marathon encircles all six lakes.  It is an unique event and an opportunity to enjoy Swedish landscape with your running shoes on. The four distances: 42,2 – 21,1 – 10,5 – 5,5 km is great if you bring friends and family. You are able to change distance until last day.


A lovely feature of the race is that you celebrate your achievement by taking a swim. The start and finish is at Fjällnora, a beach located at an isthmus between two lakes, surrounded by forests.

The event is small scale and friendly, we expect no more than 200-300 people on each distance. Our aim is to focus on lovely run courses and less garbage. So we will provide runners with multi-use cups instead of plastic cups. Less merchandise, but more run fun. You may actually meet a steam train along the course!

Our race is open for runners with dogs, last year there were just two dogs. Please contact us if you are not comfortable with four footed friends.
