New Race Courses 2020

There will be some changes to Helsinki City Running Day 2020 race courses. Runners will still enjoy the same seafront scenery, but thanks to new routing we can offer faster and flatter courses.

The biggest change is the change of direction of the HCR and HCM courses. The course now runs clockwise (compared to running counter clockwise the previous years).

The route to the finish becomes more straightforward. All runners will now approach the finish line from the north side of Telia 5 G Areena. Previously marathon and marathon relay runners came in through the southern entrance of the stadium.

The renewed marathon course avoids some tight turns near the city centre and thus becomes smoother and more runner friendly.

The detailed course maps will be published later.
