We welcome you to run with us in Finland! The highlight of the Finnish running season is the Paavo Nurmi Marathon. 
The marathon is named after the legendary Finnish long distance runner Paavo Nurmi, aka the Flying Finn, and takes place in his hometown, the beautiful city of Turku. Turku is an historical seaside town, with an amazing archipelago and nature. The marathon offers you a choice between 10km, half marathon and full marathon distance, so just pick your favourite and join the fun with 4000 other runners. Don't miss out on this fantastic experience taking place in the heart of Turku and the beautiful island of Ruissalo.



After the race, changing rooms and showers are located at Samppalinna's swimming facility, which is open to participants from 12 pm to 7 pm. After the finish there is a drinks station serving water and Maxim sports drinks. In addition to storage facilities and changing rooms, Samppalinna's swimming facility also offers the following services:– Muscle care/ Physiotherapy students from Turku University of Applied Sciences


Minimum 18 years of age.


All participants will receive a technical t-shirt by Karhu, and all  finishers will receive a finisher’s medal. All marathon distance finishers will also receive a Finisher t-shirt, which you can collect by showing your running number at the food stand on Paavo Nurmi Stadium.


Participants can store their things at cloakroom, which is located behind the city theatre building. 


The maximum running time for the marathon is 6 hours. The organisers have the right to remove any runners from the course who have not passed the halfway point after three hours. The maximum running time for the half marathon is 4 hours. The maximum running time for ten kilometres is 2 hours.


There are few large car parks in the city centre. Other events and normal Saturday traffic mean that the centre will be busy. Good places to park are: All car parks in the city centre. We recommend arriving early to make sure that you find a parking spot. Maps of the area surrounding the sports grounds can be found e.g. here. Please note that the route from Itäinen Pitkäkatu over Samppalinna hill to the Aura river bank will be closed from the morning of the event onwards. The car parks located near Valtion virastotalo, Turku City Theatre and Samppalinna swimming pool are NOT at runners’ disposal.


The race pack should be picked up from the event office. The pack includes your race bib, safety pins, timing chips attached to the race bib, and a technical t-shirt (which can be picked up from the t-shirt collection point in the event office). 


The drinks provided at the Paavo Nurmi Marathon are water and Maxim Sports Drink. It is a good idea to get used to the orange-lemon flavoured sports drink during training. On the second lap of the marathon there will also be oranges, bananas and gherkins available at drinks stations, among other things.


At the event, the timing system and results service UltimateSport Service is in use. Interval times will be measured at two different locations. The specific distances for the interval times will be advised with the results. The results will be published on Ultimate's website.
