关于 Kokkola City Run
Kokkola is located in Central Ostrobothnia in Western Finland, on the coast of the Gulf of Bothnia. The town is the financial, administrative, educational and cultural center of the region.
The biggest attraction in Kokkola (Swedish: Karleby) is its charming Old Town, Neristan, where the town’s sailors and fisherfolk once lived. Until the 1960s fishing boats could sail up the coffee-coloured river to sell fish in the kauppatori, but you wouldn’t believe it to look at the shallow water today. As with the Kvarken archipelago, the land around Kokkola is rising, which means Kokkola is chasing its port as the sea gets further from the town. Kokkola is home to the Kokkola City Run.
Kokkola City Run has established its place among springtime mass running events. It is the largest sporting event in the area. The event has a warm atmosphere and is welcoming to runners, joggers and walkers of all abilities. Enthusiasts can have their performance timed.
Kokkola City Run, KCR, invites you to walk, jog or run with over 3 000 other participants in a beautiful city of Kokkola.
KCR is organised by Kepli. Kepli is an independent, registered association that supports and develops diverse sports activity in Central Ostrobothnia. Around 250 volunteers from 10 different sports club take part in organizing KCR with Kepli. Profit from the event is used locally to develop local sports activity within children, teenagers as well as adults.
