The Course

Start and finish are located at Uppsala Castle and Uppsala Art Museum. Officials can be found at water stations and at road crossings. The course runs on asphalt, paths and dirt roads. It is a fast track that combines running experience, crowd friendliness and attractions. We hope you will like the track as much as we do! More information about the course

Control Measurement

A control measurement is carried out by a course measurer from Swedish Athletics who guarantee the correct length. The measurement is made with a bicycle and a special, calibrated measuring instrument. During a control measurement, the shortest route across the track is always taken, also the distance that a smart, and perhaps also tired, runner can imagine taking. The measuring instrument is checked before and after each track measurement by cycling a measured reference distance. Sometimes questions arise from runners who ran with a GPS watch and measured a different distance than the control measured. It often comes from the fact that, as a runner, it is almost impossible to run the absolute shortest route – which is the one that is measured. Sometimes there are other runners in the way and it is difficult to run as tight in curves as the control measurement took. In addition, the GPS clocks and maps with measuring function online are not yet precise enough to give the exact length.

Max time

Runners must have passed the halfway control 3.5 hours after the start has passed. The maximum time for all distances is 7 hours.

The finish

The finish line will be at Uppsala Castle. We want to create a nice atmosphere after the race where the runners can gather and celebrate their race. The runners are invited to “after run” with a meal and music. A nice ending in a beautiful setting. Friends and acquaintances are also welcome to join the after run and can then buy food and drink from Cajsas Kök. The food we offer is vegetarian, lactose-free, gluten-free and nut-free, so we hope that most people will be full and satisfied! At the finish line, a medal and a finisher’s shirt are distributed to the runners.

Bib number

You can find your bib number under the “start list” tab on our website. You need it when you pick up your starting bib. Bib number must be worn visibly on the chest by all participants in the Uppsala Marathon, half marathon and the relay. You can pick up your bib number before the race, at the Uppsala Art Museum from Tuesday 19 October. Art Museum opening hours: Tuesdays 11–17, Wednesdays 11–17, Thursdays 11–20, Fridays 11–17, Saturdays 11–17 and Sundays 11–17. It is also possible to pick up the bib number on the day of the competition, from 08.00 at the Uppsala Art Museum, which is located in the starting area. Relay teams get a team number, all runners in the team have the same number. In addition, there are numbers 1 to 4 that must be worn by the runners in the following order: The first runner in the relay team must wear number 1, the second number 2, etc. Timekeeping takes place with the help of a data chip that is attached at the top of a tab of the starting bib. The starting bib must be attached to the chest and be fully visible throughout the race. Important for relay participants! Your fellow runner must run through the time portal first and then you start your distance. You who are going to “take over” should not be near the time portal, keep at least 5 meters away, otherwise you will be registered in advance.

Changing rooms and showers

Shower facilities are available at the nearby Campus 1477.

Illness and injury

The Uppsala Marathon is an effort, which is why we have a doctor and nurse on site. Make sure you are completely healthy at the starting line. If you need to cancel the race and are in need of medical care, contact the race management on phone number 0708–766562. If you need to break the race, you must inform an official who will contact the race management. Each participant is obliged to the best of his ability to help another participant who has been injured, ill or if he needs other urgent help or assistance.

Toalett

There are toilets next to the start and finish. There will also be toilets along the route, these public toilets (the castle, Graneberg, the city garden (2 places) and Gamla Uppsala) are marked on the map and will be open and prepared for the Uppsala Marathon.

Transport

Start and finish at the castle is about 1 km from central Uppsala and there are plenty of options for how to get there. Walk, cycle or take public transport (Stop: Slottsbacken or Blåsenhus bus 2 or 7). There will be no specific event parking. You who are going to run a relay: It is possible to get to the relays by public transport. See map for information on locations. At www.ul.se you can search for the right bus.

Bag drop

There will be an opportunity to hand in your bag at the start. It is important that you mark your bag with your name and start number. Uppsala Marathon is not responsible for any valuables.

Water stations

Water stations will be located along the track at approximately every five kilometers. At the stations there will be water, sports drink (Umara), organic bananas and pickles. There will be litter zones for throwing away mugs and bottles at the water stations. Otherwise, it is strictly forbidden to throw rubbish along the course.

Officials

The idea behind the Uppsala Marathon is that we should be able to complete a race without having to shut down a city. Therefore, we plan the race based on the excellent conditions that Uppsala has in the form of good walking and cycling paths, the route is planned accordingly. At the points where the crossings need to be strengthened, we have officials on site. Otherwise, runners mingle with other pedestrians and cyclists. But we have officials who are supposed to keep non-runners at a reasonable distance. It is part of the charm of our race that a walker can stay on the same track as a runner, especially in open air areas. We hope you indulge in it!

Other
