Een leuke marathon deels langs de kust. Een ronde met een heen en weer stuk. De tijdslimiet is 6 uur. De website is ook in het Engels. Helsingborg ligt in Zuid-Zweden net boven Malmö.
The start is located in the heart of Helsingborg and the course will take you south past the future university venture Campus. You are now running along a wide industrial road that leads your thoughts to Berlin, until you gaze towards west and you discover the ocean. The smell of smoked salmon from Råå harbour is inviting and you feeling slowly starts to sink in. This isnít like the other races. Less than a kilometer later you are running towards the woods and Ättekulla wildlife preserve. You have now begun your trip along the 15km long The rift that runs through Helsingborg. By this time you have forgot the heavy feeling in your legs and body. Now you feel like you are quicker than the wind.
In the Ramlösa brunnspark you reach a water station near the original Ramlösa well and you feel stronger than ever. The run towards, and through, Jordbodalen and Viskängen reminds you of all the early morning runs. You feel strong and fresh when you in the distance spot an arena. Minutes later you run past Helsingborg Football Clubs home stadium Olympia. The forest path leads you into Fredriksdal where you see both goats and pigs and all of the sudden you are experiencing country life within the city. You reach the halfway mark when passing the newly built Helsingborg Arena and a couple of minutes later you see it. Standing tall, watching over the city is the medieval tower Kärnan. The panorama view over the city is breathtaking and you can now see the ocean and Denmark again.
The bike path leads you through Öresundsparken north, into the beautiful Pålsjö forest and down towards one of the most magical sights you have ever seen. Öresund and Denmark covers the horizon as you run along the The rift leading down to the ocean. When you come close to Sofiero Castle Gardens something unexpected happens. The race officer is leading the runners in through the main entrance. You now realize that you are about to run through the gardens, not past them. The great castle stands proud and when you run past it you know you did the right thing when you registered for the race.
The course takes you along the beach when you about one kilometer away spot it. The devil slope Serpentinbacken slithers its way up after 35km and for the first time during the race, you actually think about stopping for a minute to catch your breathe. Then you see it, the salvation. What goes up, must come down. You gain new powers when the 700m long Tinkarpsbacken leads you back down towards the ocean. You increase your speed, running parallel to the ocean along Strandvägen and when you run past the beach you know that itís only one kilometer left. You think about all the interval training, all the stairs you have run up and down during winter when you run the last kilometer towards the finish area at Gröningen. You raise both hands in the air and you know.
