Race routes: 5 km and 10 km
Start and Finish
The route, which runs in the national landscape of the Pyynikki ridge, is incredible, but also challenging. It is one of the most beautiful races in Finland, but also a race that demands a lot from the runner.
The route starts from the Ratina Stadium over the Suvanto-bridge and along Nalkalankatu towards Etelä-Puisto park. From Eteläpuisto park, the route turns to the traditional route toward Piispantalo. From Piispantalo the route continues along the park road toward Pyynikki Summer Theatre and Rosendahl.
In the Rosendahl area the runners of the W/M & W/M17 5 km turn and run back to the finish.
From Rosendahl the runners continue toward Varala and the corner of Tahmela sports field. The most challenging ascent of the route starts from here to the top of the ridge. The route continues on the dirt road around the ridge all the way to the Pyynikki observation tower. From here the runners start a fast descent back to Rosendahl, the Summer Theatre and along the beach road past the miniature golf course to Eteläpuisto park. From Eteläpuisto Park runners return back to Ratina Stadium.
The Kid's Turre-Run will be run on a route that has been set up in Ratina Stadium surroundings.
