About Tjejmilen

The Tjejmilen will take place on Gärdet and Djurgården in Stockholm on Saturday 2 September. The first start group will set off at 13:00. Almost 30,000 participants will run Tjejmilen, Sweden’s largest sports event for women. 

The course, which is relatively flat, is 10,000 metres long. The only tough hilly parts are after 6.5 km and after 9 km and are both followed by pleasant downhill stretches. There are officials at every road junction and signs along the course indicating the kilometre points. 

90% of the surface is asphalt, the rest is gravel. 

Choose either Fun Run or Competition Class, tjejmilen is a race for everyone. You can decide if you want to compete for a good time and position or if you just want to take it easy and enjoy the surroundings. There are 15 different start groups for different levels of competition. However, start groups close as soon as they are full – so register in good time. You can also decide if you want to be in the Competition Class – in which case your time will appear in the official results on the website. If you want to run without recording your time, you should enter the Fun Run. In the past few years approximately 65 % of participants have entered the Competition Class.

Timing

All runners in the competition class will have their start time registered when they cross the start line. In this way, everyone’s ’real’ finish time is recorded – that means the time from leaving the start line to reaching the finish line. RaceTimer is responsible for timekeeping, which uses a data chip, attached to the tab at the top of your number bib. Don’t rip this tab off !
