Join Helsinki Marathon

The Helsinki Marathon is an annual road race held at the end of summer in the capital of Finland. All runners take on the 10 km loop with a large part of the course giving everyone a view of the gulf of Finland. This marathon in Helsinki has a great atmosphere aided by several cheering points on the course with music to lift your spirit and give that extra adrenaline kick. The city was established in the 16th century by the king of Sweden. Despite being founded by the Swedes, the home of the Helsinki Marathon carries a lot of similarities with St. Petersburg, especially the wide streets and neoclassical mansions. A city tour during your weekend trip to Helsinki will not disappoint you.
