Garmin Helsinki City Marathon route offers a mixture of beautiful seaside, park and downtown landscaping. It is faster and smoother than before, avoiding some of the steepest and longest hills and narrow curves. The finish line is at the iconic Helsinki Olympic Stadium.
The HCM route consists of two laps where the first lap is longer, having a approximately 7 km loop in the Southern end of the city. The second lap is the same as the first lap, excluding the loop in the Southern end of the city.
There is 13 refreshment stations, one energy gel station and an extensive refreshment station at the Olympic Stadium finish area.
